    1956 Franklin Half on a Quarter Planchet

    1956 50C Franklin Half--Struck on 25 Cent Planchet--AU58 PCGS. Compared to the other circulating denominations, Franklin Half Dollars were struck in limited quantities. Less than 5 million Half Dollars were struck in 1956, all at the Philadelphia Mint. With productions that low, it is little surprise that the type is rarely encountered struck on a wrong planchet. This lustrous piece has light to medium gray toning, and the surfaces are unusually clean for the grade. Uncentered toward 9 o'clock with the left side elements partly off the flan.
    From The Bellaire Collection.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
