What did this 57 Frankie grade?


Recommended Posts



Weak strike/old die? Luster looks great in the pictures, could barely imagine it in hand!



As the fifties progressed, the master die lost detail, this can be seen if one were to line up Frankies from 1949 - 1959...


The late fifties Frankies head was smooth and lacke dthe hair detail found when the master die was in pristine condition.


The Mint reworked the die in 1960, bringing back the lost detail however they did do such a good job on the reverse, making full bell lines tough to comeby in the 60's.....


This coin I have image has knockout luster, some of the best my eyes have seen, and I have seen literally thousands of Franklin half dollars...
