Owner's Comments

This is a hard to find coin. Another low pop. If you like color, this has a lot to offer. This is a crossover coin.

The 1957-P Franklin Half Dollar may be considered a semi key date, as it has a mintage of approximately 5 million coins struck. While other dates in the series have a mintage of well over 25 million. Many 1957-P Franklin Half Dollars have survived in Uncirculated condition, making easily obtainable for just about any collector. Only in MS67 condition or higher is it scarce. With Full Bell details it is scarce in MS66 grade and higher.
