    It would be helpful if you would please post photos of both sides of the entire coin. Photos should be taken from directly overhead. To get a Cameo, DDR, and/or FBL designation we have to see both sides of the coin. Thank you.

    We need an image of the reverse. The FS-801 (013) has really bold doubling. It's also a really valuable coin.

    You mention a DDR & show a picture of the obverse?

    I need full size photos with the background cropped out. These thumbnails do not work for me. Not sure of the DDO and there are no FBL's on proof issues.
  9. LOL I'm sorry your 100% wrong they do have FBL'S having FBL make coin more valueable this coin is a superior coin no blemishes flawless glass coin and any doubling doesn't need to be like 1955 DDO coin where it super obvious if u got to NGC or PCGS you will learn things u do not know what your talking about this coin has full Bell lines dude I have such a large collection the doubling is obvious give u a hint save picture to your phone so u can zoom in better and see FBL'S
    So your wrong sorry

    @freethinker2016 ... The men you are arguing with are some of the best in the business. Proof coins do not get an FBL designation because it is assumed that all Franklin proofs should have FBL's. Your coin is a nice looking coin. That being said we need good photograph of the reverse to determine if it is indeed the DDR.

    You need to read it yourself..................The FBL term is generally used only in describing uncirculated business-strike Franklin half dollars. Business-strikes are intended for circulation and are not normally struck or handled as well as proofs. (Virtually all proof Franklin half dollars exhibit full bell lines.)

  15. https://coins.thefuntimesguide.com/fbl/ read 3rd and 4th paragraphs Clearly states FBL are acknowledged by PCGS
    And not arguing I'm messaging someone how in heck do u say I'm arguing lol that's to funny just stating facts
    So u also will know now that Ben Franklin Proofs are acknowledged

    I wonder if Desert Gem has mentioned that PF Franklin's, do not get the full bell line designation because they should all have them ? o_O :stop:
    I don't think your coin has cameo contrast, but is a nice looking Benny.
