Lot Description
1954 50C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. While the number of proof Franklin halves struck in 1954 soared to 233,300 pieces, Deep Cameo examples remain elusive today. The frosted effect that created the cameo effect on the most noteworthy coins wore away quickly, and a majority of Franklin proofs for the year are brilliant in appearance. This incredibly well-preserved specimen is an eye-catching exception. Though the portrait and the Liberty Bell show only moderate frost, the contrast between the devices and the watery fields is bold and undeniable. A small milk spot visits the right obverse field and the reverse exhibits a subtle golden cast, but the surfaces are otherwise untoned. Population: 4 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (11/07). From The Kallenberg #1 PCGS Registry Set Of Proof Half Dollars.
