CoinWeek Podcast #32: Grading Franklin Half Dollars

Franklin half dollars have long been a collector favorite. One of the most attractive 20th-century coins, the crisp, clean design leaves provides precious little cover for bag marks and scratches. Advanced collectors seek out the best specimens. For some dates, conditional rarities in high Mint State grades bring tens of thousands of dollars.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, adapted from Ron Drzewucki’s CoinWeek column “Grading Coins”, we delve into how a professional grader looks at the series and what differentiates low Mint State Franklins from high Mint State examples.
