Lot Description
1951 50C PR67 Deep Cameo NGC. In Rick Tomaska's most recent book on this series, he states: "RARE. All known examples are struck from repolished dies. The finest 1951 Franklins in ultra heavy possess breathtaking cameo contrast, and are so superior in appearance to the typical '51 as to make it difficult to believe such a qualitative difference could take place within a single year." This is a splendid coin that is brilliant throughout and shows significant mint frost on the devices, which contrasts sharply against the deeply reflective fields. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (11/03).
