A Major Addition

5 posts in this topic

Keep swinging for the fence .....


Greetings once again all;

Today I am proud to add a major addition to my Franklin collection. I started this collection with the dedication of ONLY buying raw coins and submitting them for grading. Along the way I have conversed with a few here about the Franklins and researched various avenues.

I was fortunate to "win" an on-line auction the first part of July for a 1951 Franklin Proof I really thought could be "special". Until you actually get it in hand though, you're not really, truly sure. Although I have known for almost a week and a half as they post the grades before shipping it back to you, until it was in hand I wasn't about to say anything as I have encountered a "mechanical error" before and wanted to be sure.


So today I have added my 1951 Proof Franklin graded PF68. To date out of 1803, there have ONLY been 7 graded at this level with one being a star but none at a higher grade and with mine the population is now 8 !!!!


So with my teaser line stating keep swinging for the fence, you never know when your next swing (submission) is going to be a home-run.


Attached is a photo


good luck to everyone and here's hoping all hit one out of the park .....

Congrats Moondoggy, it's of my opinion that there is not much more gratifying to an individual than recieving something that was better than you had thought it was.
