1959-P (Type-1 Reverse) Franklin Half Dollar
In 1958 & 1959 Proof Reverse Dies were used to mint some Business-Strike Franklin Halves. The Proof Reverse coins (Type 2) have a
high relief eagle with three large distinct wing-tips nearly touching on both the left & right of the perch. The eagle’s neck feathers are well
defined & the eagle has a flat hooked beak. Business-Strike Dies produced coins with a Low Relief Eagle with four wing-tip feathers right & left of the perch, & a curved beak.
For 1959 it is estimated that only 30% of coins are the Low Relief "Type 1" Variety, while 70% have the "Type 2" Proof Style (High Relief) Eagle.
A detailed description of this variety is presented at: www.franklinlover.yolasite.com/type-1-and-2.php
