I've been wanting one of these for a while. There are 2 dates in the Franklin series which have prooflikes graded - 1949S, and 1959 (there are some dates with semi-prooflike fields, and I have posted on those previously). The 1949S is more available, and I have a very nice FBL example which I've also posted a few times. The 1959 is scarcer, and is very difficult to come by. All known 1959 PLs are of the Type II design, and the leading theory is that a proof die was used to strike business strikes. After a couple of dozen strikes, the mirrored finish would have worn down and become indistinguishable from a normal business strike die. Anyways, I was trawling Ebay as I often do, and saw this beauty come up for sale. The mirrors are quite distinct and flashy. I am extremely pleased to add this coin to my collection. It is graded NGC MS-64 PL. Tell me what you think!
