Owner Comments:

(1 of 2) Electric red toning perfectly placed on Franklin's hair; the reminder of the obverse is lightly russet toned with speckles of blue throughout. The reverse is equally original. Hard to tell from the picture but this coin is dripping with full mint luster.

(2 of 2) I picked up the second '55 from R and I coins in December. What can I say, I'm a sucker for nicely toned Franklins. This one has great blue color all over the obervse. The reverse is equally nice. Similar blue toning but over a red background. Both sets of bell lines are full.
