1948 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86651

This is a wonderful coin that was Pedigreed TN FRKLNS. I found a large quantity of these at an Estate Sale in Tenn. I acquired all I could afford and carry.

1948 50C Obv Die Clash FS-401 MS66FBL PCGS #509935

Acquired this coin from DMRC. It came from the Grandfather Mountain set. It just got upgraded by PCGSs to it's current grade. None finer at this time

This coin is one of the Omaha Bank Hoard coins.

1948-D 50C DDR FS-801 MS65FBL PCGS #145804

1949 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65FBL PCGS #408489

Another coin acquired from DMRC. This coin came from the Grandfather Mountain set and was Pedigreed TN FRKLNS. What I am told, that was the 1st set of Franklins to be Pedigreed.

1949-D 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86654

This coin was just upgraded by PCGS to it's current grade and raised the value of the coin by over $400.00. I'll take that any day.

1949-S 50C MS66 PCGS #6655

Very unusual toning. Great strike. Could grade higher on another day.

1949-S/S 50C RPM FS-501 (011.3) MS64FBL PCGS #145806

Very bold RPM. No doubt about this variety.

1950 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86656

This coin should be at least a + grade or higher. Maybe on the next cycle.

1950 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS64FBL PCGS #510657

Thanks to DMRC again for a superb coin. Only 1 graded higher at this time. Thanks Douglass

1950-D 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86657

Great upgrade to my set for the moment. One step at a time.

1950-D 50C RPM FS-501 MS65FBL PCGS #509945

1951 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65 PCGS #147864

This coin came from J.T. Stanton, the co-author of the Cherrypickers Guide thru Ebay. I sent it to PCGS and got the FS-401 Bugs designation as a surprise. Thanks to all. This is a top pop coin.

1951 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS64 PCGS #509936

Another superb coin from DMRC. The variety is very bold. Worth every dime. This is a very hard variety to acquire. It can be a stopper for a set of Franklins.

1951-D 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86659

Great upgrade. More to come.

1951-S 50C MS65 PCGS #6660

will be looking for an upgrade on the next cycle.

1951-S 50C DDR FS-801 (011.5) MS65+ PCGS #395999

Worth every dime paid for the quality of this coin.

1951-S/S 50C RPM FS-501 MS66 PCGS #509949

Purchased this coin and sent it in to PCGS for the RPM designation and got a superb one. Will be looking for a + grade on this coin soon,

1952 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86661

Great strike, full bell lines, nice toning, maybe + grade or step up soon.

1952 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS64FBL PCGS #147867

And the band plays on. Another super coin from the Grandfather Mountain set and DMRC. This is a very difficult coin to find in Mint State. Only 1 finer at this time.

1952 50C "Scarface" FS-402 MS64FBL PCGS #510587

This coin represents my final upgrade for now. I have two other coins of this variety, both lower graded, but this is the boldest representation. This is a top pop coin.

1952-D 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86662

This coin is an unattributed FS-401 Bugs Bunny. Very bold variety. Easy to see. Beautiful toning on both sides of this coin.

1952-S 50C MS66 PCGS #6663

This coin multi-color toning on all surfaces. It is an unattributed FS-401 Bugs Bunny.

1952-S/S 50C RPM FS-501 MS65 PCGS #511000

Self made variety. Found this coin in a large group.

1953 50C MS66 PCGS #6664

Toning is better when you hold this coin in your hand. Really reflective.

1953 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65FBL PCGS #147869

PCGS just keeps coming through. This coin was recently upgraded to it's current grade and made it a "none finer". The higher value has yet to be determined.

1953 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS63FBL PCGS #515813

Bought this as a filler but got the hard to find variety and in FBL. Now I am looking to upgrade this spot. Good luck to me.

1953-D 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86665

Here is a coin that if it wasn't for a couple of ticks would be a 67. Beautiful toning on all surfaces. PCGS just upgraded this coin from MS65FL to MS66FL. Thanks

1953-D 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65FBL PCGS #415696

Great strike. Mild toning. Loads of eye appeal. Top pop coin. (in FBL)

1953-D 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS64+ FBL PCGS #509931

Got another upgrade from PCGS to the + grade. Unexpected.

1953-S 50C MS66+ PCGS #6666

Another unexpected upgrade. This coin is a breath away from being FBL, which would make it worth about $$$$$$?????.

1953-S 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS66 PCGS #510396

Another super coin from DMRC. Thanks Douglas

1953-S/S 50C RPM FS-501 MS66 PCGS #396177

PCGS just upgraded this coin and made it a top pop coin. The toning on this coin is great.

1954 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86667

Great coin for the price and condition. Lots of eye appeal.

1954 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS66 PCGS #147870

This is a great upgrade for my set. I need the 66+ to get the extra points but this is still a top pop coin in Non-FBL. If I get PCGS to do their preservation on this coin it should go FBL and ODC which would make it a NONE FINER.

1954 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS65FBL PCGS #509939

PCGS just designated this coin FBL which made it a top pop coin. Higher value to be determined. Very nice coin.

1954-D 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86668

Great strike and super eye appeal.

1954-D 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS64FBL PCGS #147873

Thanks again to DMRC. This coin was previously Pedigreed TN FRKLNS. This is another top pop coin for my set.

1954-D 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS65FBL PCGS #509941

This is another coin that PCGS has upgraded to it's current grade. Only 1 finer at this time. Satiny toning.

1954-S 50C MS66 PCGS #6669

Good strike, light multi-color toning on obverse and reverse. Very nice coin for the price.

Looking for an upgrade. Would like to have a + or an FBL.

1956 50C Obv Die Clash FS 402 MS66FBL PCGS #511461

Rainbow toning on this coin is it's plus. Something to behold. Great strike and full bell lines. Thanks to DMRC for another great coin for my set.

1957 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86672

Multi-color toning on this coin and a super strike make this a keeper.

1957-D 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86673

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

1957-D/D 50C RPM FS-501 MS64FBL PCGS #396192

Very nice for it's age. Nice clean lines to this coin. It could also be attributed as an ODC.

1958-D 50C MS66FBL PCGS #86675

If you like toning this is the coin for you. I am giving thought to a preservation and possible upgrade.

1959 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86676

Very sharp bell lines, type II reverse.

1959 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65FBL PCGS #501605

Great upgrade to my set at this time. Only 1 finer. Thanks to djf-coins.

1959 50C "Goiter" FS-402 MS65 PCGS #510539

Another top pop coin and a great variety.

1959 50C DDR FS-801 MS65FBL PCGS #145434

This is a very interesting coin. It is designated a DDR, it is a type II reverse, and it shows the markers for an FS-401 Bugs.

1959-D 50C MS65FBL PCGS #86677

Very nice clean coin. Looking for an upgrade.

1960 50C MS65 PCGS #6678

This coin should be an FBL. Maybe next cycle.

Another top pop coin generated by an upgrade. Thanks PCGS

1960 50C Obv Die Clash FS-402 MS64+ FBL PCGS #510670

As a 64+, held the top spot for a short time. Then it got upgraded to a 64+FL. Now it is a None Finer. (in FBL) Higher value to be determined.

1960-D 50C MS65 PCGS #6679

Recent upgrade raised the value by 500%. This is also an Omaha Bank Hoard coin.

Clean and bright. Full bell lines. Very nice coin. Looking to upgrade.

1961 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS64FBL PCGS #511456

Clean and bright. Looking for an upgrade.

1962 50C MS65 PCGS #6682

Looking for an upgrade.

1962 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS65 PCGS #511457

1962-D 50C MS64FBL PCGS #86683

Looking for an upgrade.

1963 50C MS65 PCGS #6684

Seems that all the high grade examples of this coin are in hiding somewhere. Come out, Come out, wherever you are.

1963 50C "Bugs Bunny" FS-401 MS64 PCGS #511463

Just a bag mark away from FBL. Very nice coin.

Very close to FBL. Nice bright coin.

1963 50C DDR FS-801 MS64 PCGS #510122

Not too many of these at first. Now there plenty but hard to find high grade.
