1957 Proof Franklin Silver Half Dollar Coin - Choice PF Condition
The Franklin Half Dollar was quite popular and circulated widely, but its run was cut short after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the subsequent introduction of the Kennedy Half Dollar honoring the slain president.
As the price of silver rose in the 1960's and skyrocketed in the late 1970's, millions of these coins were melted for their silver value.
