In the red, 1948-D Franklin.

It's nice to go on vacation, and it's nice to be back.


Here is a 1948-D Bennie Boy, PCGS MS65FBL. They are quite rare, but every now and then you'll find a '48 piece (both P and D) that has a deep, rich red to it. The toning on this piece has progressed to dark gray on about 35-40% of the reverse and 10-15% of the obverse, but other than that it is seriously cool. Also, for the grade, the obverse is very clean. The images were done by Bob Campbell and I think he did an excellent job.

I usually don't admire those that are really heavily dark toned or those that have the wild rainbow colors, but this Frankie does it for me for some odd reason. I like the danged thing.



Thanks for sharing!
