1959 Franklin NGC PF 68 STAR CAMEO CAC
Here is the eleventh edition of one of the most phenomenal proof Franklin collections in the NGC Registry. This is one of the finest 1959 proof Franklin halves in existence! Finding a 1959 proof Franklin with heavy cameo contrast is extremely rare! I can't get over how heavily frosted the obverse cameo contrast is. It's unbelievable! CAKED snow-white cameo devices smother Franklin. Then you turn this beauty over and the Liberty bell is caked too! The cameo on the reverse is silky and smooth and borders on Ultra Cameo. The fields are deep, and jet-black with no spotting or haze. It's one of the finest in existence! Deserving every inch of that Star designation. NGC has only graded 10 examples in PF 68 STAR CAMEO.
