    A Guide Book of Franklin and Kennedy Half Dollars was the award-winning 15th entry in Whitman's best-selling Bowers Series of numismatic reference books. The first two editions filled a gap in the hobby literature. Now renowned author, researcher, and coin dealer Rick Tomaska has updated the book to a third edition, with new content and expanded and revised information for collectors and investors. Franklin half dollars (1948 to 1963) and Kennedy half dollars (1964 to date) are affordable favorites in the coin-collecting hobby. Lavishly illustrated in full color, this book features high-resolution enlargements for important doubled dies and other collectible varieties. New material includes discussion of the 2014 gold Kennedy half dollar, carved and tooled coins, counterfeits and spurious alterations, and more. Mintages, specifications, market values in multiple grades (including Full Bell Lines for Franklin halves), inside information on set registries, and smart buying tips make the book a valuable standard reference. The new updated and revised third edition will deepen your appreciation and make you a savvier collector of these popular coins.
