Why add this is a set of all 35 American Silver Franklin Half Dollars from 1948 to 1963 to your collection?

These Franklin Half Dollars are Classic Set of 35 Coins and can be yours in Brilliant Uncirculated condition in this excellent Dansco Album presentation.

The US Mint struck the Franklin Half series from 1948 through 1963 when the series end was hastened due to the rushed production of the Kennedy Half Dollar. The coins are struck on a 90% silver planchet and are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin contains .36169 oz. of silver.

John Sinnock, the Eighth Chief Engraver of the US Mint was the designer of the coin. The obverse features the portrait of one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin. This image was modeled on the bust of Franklin sculpted by Jean-Antoine Houdin.

The reverse image of the Liberty Bell was derived from a previous effort by Sinnock that was inspired by a sketch by John Frederick Lewis. That image was featured on the 1926 US Commemorative Half that celebrated the sesquicentennial of American Independence. The Franklin Half reverse was finished by Mint Engraver Gilroy Roberts after Sinnock's death in 1947.

Brilliant Uncirculated coins are sought after by collectors because of their superior eye appeal and original surfaces. Dansco Albums have long been a desirable way for collectors to store and display their coins.

Franklin set seems dusty
The set seems old and made to just seem like a Franklin set.
1. So-called Dansco album is old, does not say Franklin set on cover, so could be any album.
2. The album shows big gap between pages of which is only 2.
3. Coins seem old, may be uncirculated, but definitely not BU.

I immediately put in back of other collections, wishing I had returned.
