In this week’s Bluesheet we take a review of Franklin half dollars, which have been performing well in high certified grades. Many dates in MS66 and MS66 Full Bell Lines see higher bids, as more and more collectors recognize the scarcity of certain dates in these grades. The few decreases in price are found at the MS67 Full Bell Lines grade level, which may be impacted by varying grading standards. The standout dates include 1950-D, 1952-S, 1953, 1954-S, and 1961-D. It should be noted that more than a few coins in this series are unknown in MS67, which makes competition for MS66 specimens all the more fierce amongst registry collectors.
