    I purchased two Franklin halves but argued or discussed if they were Proofs or BU. I told him they were not proofs but BU the seller insisted they were Proofs. I thumbnail.jpg thumbnail.jpg tried a PIC with phone.

    Seller was right. Those are proofs, and Franklin halves, not Kennedy. Pretty coins!

    Yup those are proofs. Most of the proof franklins out there don't have the same level of cameo contrast as more modern proof coins.

    Either proofs, or heavily polished. Most likely proofs.

    Definitely proofs. What made you think they are MS and not proofs?
