US, Canada, Proof, Circulation Strike, SMS, Toned, Untoned, Cameo, Brilliant.

Just because.




































I must admit, I do like me smoe "50 cent" :)

I need to add a Barber half or two or three to my half dollar collection.

Along with a draped bust half dollar at some point in time.

    Totally outstanding parade of coins...Boy, you've got some good one's in there. I particularly love the toned proof Franklins!

    Eldorado.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    The 1954 to 1960 toned Franklins were part of a set of 1954 - 1960 proof sets that I purchased a year ago from a dealer. The dealer purchased the proof sets from a collector who had purchased them from the mint in the year of issue. The collector placed the coins in the proof sets into Wayte Raymond albums. The coins remained in the albums for decades. They developed gorgeous toning.

    I submitted the toned Franklins for grading last February.

    The 1954 - 1960 minors are still in the Wayte Raymond albums. They are as good in not better than the Franklin half dollars. They will also be submitted for grading and Trueviewed. Once that is done the minors will take up residence in a Registry Set of toned 1950-1964 proof coins.

    Just because I'm old doesn't mean I don't love to look at a pretty bust.

    Nice display, SanctionII, like a fireworks show slowly building up to the Franklin Finale!!

    This is a marvelous parade of half dollar coins. I like big silver, and the WLH was a favorite of mine as a kid. Did not get them often, but would spend a long time examining each one when I did get it. Cheers, RickO

    The Proof Barber half and the Capped Bust halves shown in this thread are gorgeous and raise the quality of this parade from a 30 minute small town parade on the 4th of July to the Rose Parade on New Years Day.

    Keep the parade going with photos of more half dollars.

    @pursuitofliberty Hey - you've strayed from your CBH mission. Get back on track and stay away from the seated coins lest you grab all the good ones! ;)

    Way to go Catbert.

    Your new coins are gorgeous, especially the reverse of the 1937 proof half.

    Just trying to find 1 thinking that someone on the boards knows of any. Hey it's worth a try
    I do agree with going to shows and searching for one, if there were any shows close to me here in Utah!

    1968-s PCGS PR64DCAM POP 15
    1969-S PCGS PR64DCAM POP 19
    1970-S PCGS PR64DCAM POP 9
