What didn't Benjamin Franklin do in his 84 years on earth? He wore many hats, and wore them well, too: scientist, inventor, author, printer — oh, and a Founding Father of the United States. And if his resume wasn't already impressive enough, he also posthumously appeared on the $100 bill and was chosen for the 1948-1963 half dollar. Although the longevity of the last 90% silver half dollar series wasn't nearly as lengthy as Franklin's life, it is a favorite as its brevity allows collectors of all abilities the opportunity to assemble a complete set with relative ease. So why not start here with a nicely detailed Very Fine specimen? Our choice of date and mint.
