Few collectors realize the 1955 Franklin half dollar wasn't issued until the summer of 1956! When it was released, it made headlines and gave a big boost to the numismatic hobby. Now, you can own a 2-coin variety set of 1955 Franklin halves - still in collector-preferred Uncirculated condition after more than half a century!
With this exceptional set, you'll get both the lowest business strike mintage in the entire series and the best known of the Franklin errors - the Bugs Bunny variety. Called a die clash, this error occurred when the obverse and reverse dies hit each other without a planchet in between. The clash caused design details from the reverse to be impressed into Franklin's lips, creating what appears to be buck teeth - hence, the nickname Bugs Bunny. Both coins come displayed in a handsome presentation case. Sure to be a collector favorite, you'll want to order your set right away!
