1949-S Franklin half dollar NGC MS66*
This is not your average 1949-S mint state Franklin half dollar. This gem screams rarity! Just look at those proof-like surfaces! WOW!!!!! This jewel right here is not only rare in MS66* condition with a low population of only 10 examples but also coupled with the extremely clean proof-like surfaces makes the rarity of this beauty go up tremendously. NGC has only certified 13 total examples in ALL grades of proof-like condition. This is a rare find!
The obverse and reverse are stunning offering proof-like surfaces extremely clean surfaces. Franklin and the Liberty bell appear to offer a faint cameo glaze giving it another POP of rarity. I have handled a good majority of the proof-like examples certified to date and it is extremely rare to find a 1949-S mint state Franklin with surfaces this clean in proof-like condition.
This is an example that has been tucked away for quite some time and I am excited to be able to offer an example again I had previously owned in my own personal collection at one point in my numismatic career. If you are interested in owning an extremely rare top quality 1949-S mint state Franklin in a condition rarely encountered for this issue I strongly suggest you jump on this one peeps.
