NGC set is complete!


About two years ago I decided to split my Franklin half dollar set by grading service. The criteria for Full Bell Lines is quite different at PCGS compared to NGC.


Other than the 1953-S, my objective was to complete a NGC set in MS-64 FBL or better (the 53-S is virtually unobtainable in FBL). Last week, the last one appeared on ebay - a 1962-P in MS-64FBL. It's not exactly "rare" but NGC has only graded 63 of them, with 15 graded higher in FBL. It was only the second one I have seen on ebay, Heritage or Teletrade in over a year so I jumped on it.


Now I'm three away from finishing the PCGS set - a 1953-D (MS-65 FBL), a1958-P (MS-66 FBL), and a 1963-P (MS-64 FBL). If anyone out there has these for sale or trade, I'm interested.


Of course, other sets also keep begging for attention. Here's the latest adition to my Quarter type set -a1917 Type 2 in MS-64 FH. I already had two MS-64 FH quarters in my 1930 Mint set, but the detail on the head and shield on this one make the 30's look poorly struck in comparison.
