Jaime Hernandez: The 1962-D Franklin Half Dollar is one of the more common dates and has the second highest mintage in the series. Therefore, nice examples of this date can easily be acquired for minimal cost. Only examples in MS66 condition become scarce and most examples have probably already been certified and command a high premium.  With the Full Bell Lines designation this issue is scarce  in MS65 condition with less than about 1,000 examples known. In MS66 FBL condition it is really scarce with less than 2 dozen graded by PCGS in this condition with one known in MS66 FBL and none being known in better condition.
