1949-D Franklin half dollar PCGS MS66FBL CAC
When was the last time you came across a fully brilliant or MONSTER color toned 1949-D mint state Franklin half dollar in high grade with full bell lines?
PCGS has only certified 120 examples to date in MS66FBL condition. This issue is available in abundance with solid strikes but bag marks keep the majority of 1949-D Franklins out of Full Bell Line territory. Locating an MS66FBL is rare to come by but finding an example with fully brilliant or monster color toned attractive surfaces in MS66FBL is EXTREMELY RARE and should be noted. Coins of this caliber are tucked away in high grade Franklin half dollar registries and rarely pop out of these collections. These types of examples rarely make it on the market but when they do they reach extremely high premiums.
I just got in an absolutely beautiful 1949-D Franklin half dollar certified by PCGS in MS66FBL. It truly is a stunning example for the date and grade offering light iridescent shades that simply stun your eye. Baby blue, gold, violet and peach hues brighten up both the obverse and reverse beautifully. The luster is absolutely incredible making the color pop off the extremely clean fields. Franklin's cheek and the Liberty bell are smooth as silk. The bell lines are bold and well defined! An added treat is the sweet CAC certification as there are only 26 certified to date so far.
