Franklin Mint Presidential Profiles Set in Wood Box. Cat Code: PRI-File No: 200

Each Franklin Mint Ingot is: 1,000 grains or 2.08 Troy Ounces+- of Solid .925F Sterling Silver.
The set includes 34 Proof Quality Ingots from: Washington –Kennedy. The Presidential Profiles are a Cameo relief set against deep mirror proof like fields.
 This set has been well preserved, never harshly cleaned or wiped. There are no noticeable hairlines from any cleaning. There are a few scattered and normal contact marks to be found on some as minted. These are in Gem Proof 66 -68+ condition.
There are over 70.72+- troy ounces of solid sterling silver in the set measuring: 45.2mm x 23mm wide x 6.7mm thick +- marked at 1,000 grains ea. This is one of only 2,360 sets issued. (Note:  that not all sets would be complete due to the death of the subscribing patron, and there are no reported subscription trades from FM records).
Presidents Johnson, Nixon, and Ford ingots were never obtained for this set, yet it is a fine tribute to include all the presidents, including Kennedy, for which silver coinage was used during their terms as president.
 It is, therefore, a very complete set which includes the 40 page Presidential Profiles essay booklet. The original wood chest is made for only 36 ingots; however, in 1974 a Ford ingot was issued by Franklin Mint.
P182 of: Guidebook of Franklin Mint Issues 1978 ed. By: Krause (with a printer’s typographic error in the set’s description in the 1978 guidebook, corrected in the 1979 guidebook).

With the closing of the Franklin Mint at the Franklin Center, and out of the minting business, no more ingots of this series are available and can not be continued.  POR
