Lot Description
1954 50C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Analysis of certified population data reveals the extreme importance of this coin. While PCGS has certified more than 4,200 proof 1954 Franklin half dollars, only 71 of those coins have received the Deep Cameo designation. Numerically, that service has graded 113 examples in PR68 or better, but just four of those are certified as PR68 Deep Cameo, and only one coin has been called PR69 (11/09). This piece has fully brilliant silver surfaces with seemingly endless mirrored fields and intense mint frost on the devices. There is no evidence of toning on either side without the use of strong magnification. A remarkable coin that will add many points to the Set Registry collection of proof Franklin half dollars.
