How many 1951 proof Franklins have you handled that offered shallow mirrors?
I have come across more shallow mirrored 1951 proof Franklins than I can count. It is such a disappointment! Shallow mirrors and plenty of hairlines equals a disaster in quality for this issue. 1951 proof Franklins are tough to come across with deep jet-black fields. Hairlines keep a good majority of the 1951 proof Franklins out of high grade territory.
