Lot Description
1950 50C MS67 Full Bell Lines PCGS. An extraordinary early Franklin that compares favorably to the similarly graded NGC coin offered in our 1999 FUN Sale. Like that piece, the example offered here is rather similar in appearance to its mint set brethren from preceding and following years (inexplicably, no double mint sets were issued in 1950). Both sides are layered in speckled lilac and iridescent orange hues, with underlying surfaces that have escaped all but the tiniest imperfections. The strike is predictably sharp, a hallmark of this generally well produced issue. The importance of this Superb Franklin is best illustrated by its PCGS population, this currently being the only MS67 Full Bell Lines certified.
