1960 or 1961 Silver Franklin MS64 PCGS (P & D) Half Dollar Coin w/ Slab

The Franklin half dollar is a coin that was struck by the United States Mint from 1948 to 1963. The 50-cent piece pictures Founding Father Benjamin Franklin on the obverse and the Liberty Bell on the reverse. A small eagle was placed to the right of the bell to fulfill the legal requirement that half dollars depict the figure of an eagle. Produced in 90 percent silver with a reeded edge, the coin was struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints.
