1962 Franklin Half Dollar Proof - PCGS PR68CAM
A very nice cameo Franklin Half Dollar proof, this coin was graded as a PR68CAM by PCGS. This Franklin has what seems to be a "deep cameo" as compared to other proof coins that I have and has a very deep and appealling contrast. I can say with all certainty that this is no "borderline CAM" and it perhaps could have went DCAM on another day. As you know, Cameo designation by PCGS is not an easy thing to figure out as it is hugely subjective and varies widely.
Grade: PCGS PR68CAM.
Return: As-Is Item, no returns on graded coins and mint sets
Additional Notes: Fresh certification, but pre PCGS "+" certification.
Photos And Accurate Descriptions of Coins
I often include more than one picture in my auctions / buy it now sales and they are always clear. I have bought coins on eBay and been quite disappointed because the image(s) did not represent the coin correctly or was even misleading. Sometimes, I "take a chance" and have been rewarded but more often not so much. Rest assured that the detailed (and sometimes huge) photograph(s) depicts the actual item being sold here. As a former fine-art photographer, I not edit, enhance or otherwise distort the images to hide anything... In my opinion, image manipulation is wrong.
Coin grading is subjective so I only offer my opinion based on limited experience. I am not a professional grader by any means but I hope to be one when I grow up. ;-) I will only give a numerical grade if a coin is slabbed by one of the top grading outfits like PCGS and NGC.
Any grades that I offer for raw coins (Gem, Choice, BU etc.) are strictly opinions. That opinion is based on what I purchased the coin as or what I have seen / purchased from some very reputable dealers online and elsewhere. All grading is a subjective opinion. The ultimate decision on grading belongs to you as I try to offer the best quality images for your viewing pleasure. I am not a dealer but rather a small time collector. My off and on ebay selling experience is an extension of the trading of coins and baseball cards that many of us engaged in as kids.
