1953-S Franklin Half Dollar. MS-65 FBL (PCGS).This FBL Gem Franklin half dollar offers outstanding quality and eye appeal. Dusted with delicate iridescent gold toning, both sides are highly lustrous with an intense satin to softly frosted texture. The remarkably full strike is sure to result in a strong realized price as the 1953-S is the rarest half dollar of this type with Full Bell Lines detail, and by a wide margin. Even in Choice Mint State such pieces are elusive, while in Gem Uncirculated, as here, examples are usually encountered only once in a very long while. One of our most significant Franklin half dollar offerings in recent memory, this coin comes highly recommended for inclusion in an advanced set of this underrated 20th century series.From the High Rise Collection.
