I chose Franklin collecting because I admire Ben Franklin's accomplishments and his ageless wit. As a child, I recall getting this larger coin as change after a purchase. For me, collecting Franklins makes a unique connection to my youth!
I began this Mint State collection in 2007 after completion of my NGC Franklin Proof Registry Set . My goal is to complete this set in MS66/65 FBL or better. It has been a fun and educational experience, albeit costly. My wish is for rarity and price appreciation over the coming years thus enabling my family to enjoy the size of this "prize". My hope is to provide a legacy collectable set which is passed down and improved upon in some way by each generation.Good luck in your collecting endeavors. I wish you as much enjoyment in coin collecting!
