1961 50C PR66 Certification #30862043, PCGS #6702

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1961 Proof Franklin Half Dollar is one of the more common proof coins from the series. Its similar to Franklin Half Proofs struck from 1960-1964. Examples displaying full cameo and deep cameo surfaces are much scarcer and command higher premiums.
