About the Author


ach mint has its own mintmark, but they have not been consistent through the years.  Sometimes different sizes of mintmark were used.  Sometimes the punch wore out and was replaced with one of a different style.  Occasionally more than one style was used during a production year or range of years.  Because not all mintmark styles were used in a given series, the styles have been cataloged based on the series rather than the styles themselves.



Philadelphia never adopted a
mintmark for the Franklin Half.
