Lot Description
1952 50C PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. The 1952 is scarcely encountered in Ultra Cameo and is quite elusive above the Gem level. Many of the 1952 Franklin halves with cameo contrast were struck from mismatched dies and thus matching ultra cameo contrast was not produced on both sides of the coins, leaving them as essentially single-sided Cameo Proofs. This deeply contrasted piece is a welcome exception, providing evenly matched contrast on both sides for exceptional eye appeal. These pieces are in high demand not only from Franklin specialists, but also by connoisseurs of contrasted Proofs. Census: 2 in 67 Ultra Cameo, 3 finer (11/12). From The Atlanta Collection.
