Save big on this wonderful set that includes every date and mint issue in the popular silver series. When Congress authorized the Franklin silver half dollar in 1948, it was expected to be issued for at least 25 consecutive years. But following the tragic loss of President Kennedy, Congress quickly approved a new 1964 Kennedy half dollar, abruptly supplanting the Franklin series. This proved to be America's last half dollar to be completely struck in traditional 90% silver. Grades range from Very Fine to Brilliant Uncirculated. We'll include a Custom Dansco album for FREE.
