Lot Description
1960 50C PR69 Deep Cameo PCGS. Until such time as NGC or PCGS certifies a Franklin half dollar as PR70, the PR69 Deep Cameo is the ultimate coin in the series. PCGS has certified 75 such pieces across the entire series, including 39 dated 1956, 11 dated 1962, and 16 dated 1963. That leaves just nine coins for all other dates combined. This amazing coin is housed in an older green-label PCGS holder and exhibits stunning mint frost on the devices, with unfathomably deep mirrored fields on each side. The surfaces show incredible proof brilliance with "black and white" contrast.
