I send a lot of franklins in, I find that PCGS is real hard on proofs, where NGC is hard but gives a one grade better over all. To get over the Proof 66 grades, the coin has to have a flawless back ground. The cheek of franklin must be defect free. If you look close, the franklins will have tiny bumps in the fields, Die flaws, where the silver does not flow properly and leaves uneven fields. Remember, at NGC and PCGS, if your going for cameo, both sides must be cameo, If one side is deep cameo, the other just cameo, then you get cameo only, in order for a deep cameo, then BOTH sides must be deep cameo.

You will get more 65's and 66's then 67.
