1962 Franklin half dollar NGC PF 68 * CAMEO CAC
1962 proof Franklins are so tough to find in high grade. Milk spots were a major issue this year and locating spot-free 1962 proof Franklins is tougher than one might think. I can't tell you how many examples I've handled with spotted surfaces. Too many! I am always on the hunt for those examples that sport ultimate black as night fields with no spots in sight. Those are the rare finds and coupled with monster cameo contrast you have a recipe for an extremely rare numismatic treasure.
This example right here borders on Ultra Cameo! It is struck off one of the top dies for this issue. The fields are so deep and reflective. There is no haze on this example! The fields are so deep and jet-black this example may find itself in a Ultra Cameo holder in the near future. The cameo devices are thick on both obverse and reverse. Black and white phenomenal contrast!
NGC has certified 1,687 examples to date in PF68CAMEO but there are only 77 certified in PF68*CAMEO. NGC has only certified 294 examples in PF 68 ULTRA CAMEO. Do you see how rare this coin is in the condition being offered? A 1962 proof Franklin with quality this incredible is so tough to come by. This stunner right here has also been CAC approved.
