1956 Type 1 Proof Franklin Half NGC PF67 SOLD
1956 Type 1 Proof Franklin Half NGC PF67
In 1956, there were two major varieties of Proof Franklin Half Dollars issued. The most noticeable difference is on the small eagle on the reverse. The Type 1 variety has an eagle with four narrow feathers to the left of the perch, the Type 2 variety has an eagle with three wider feathers to the left of the perch. Many experts feel the Type 1 variety is between 10 times and 20 times more scarce than the more common Type 2 variety. Here is a 1956 Type 1 Proof Franklin Half Dollar which has been graded PF67 by NGC and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. The coin is untoned and a very flashy piece. This example is free of any noticeable marks or hits and exhibits wonderful overall eye appeal. A great example of the Type 1 1956 Proof Franklin Half.
