The Proof 1950 Franklin half dollar represents a significant challenge for advanced specialists of the series. This issue marks the first time the Mint had struck Proof half dollars since 1942, a mintage of 51,386, which would remain the smallest Proof mintage of the series. Many problems plagued the production of Proof halves that year, resulting in overall low quality.​​

We are still offering a free gift with purchase in the New York store, so come in while supplies last!  Nothing is better than a gift of a gold or silver coin, and that gets even sweeter when you get a bonus that you can’t get anywhere else.  We are selling a lot of gold and silver, but we are also continuing to buy as well, so our stock is very robust. ​​

The year of 1962 had proved to be quite successful. We were pleased with the results of our first offering of the Samuel Wolfson Collection and we also had the feeling that 1963 would even be better, as there were several important offerings scheduled for our public auctions. In addition to having the Wolfson silver and copper coins already in house, we also had been tapped to sell the George Walton Collection, as Mr. Walton had died in a horrible accident the year before.​​
