Owner Comments:

Quoted from Stack's and Bowers March 2010 Baltimore Auction Catalog: "The 1959 is scarce with originally toned surfaces, and the issue is downright rare as a Superb Gem. Virtually all MS-67s known lack Full Bell Lines definition, but the vibrancy of luster, vividness of color and smoothness of surfaces that this coin possesses still provide exceptional eye appeal. Rich rose, orange-red, medium-gold, reddish-russet, powder-blue and pearl-gray colors are well blended over both sides. The most vivid shades are confined to the peripheries, but all areas remain equally vibrant in the luster category. A frosty example that belongs in the finest Franklin Half Dollar set."
