Franklin Half Dollars were produced for circulation from 1948 to 1963 at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco mint and in collectors edition Proof at the Philadelphia mint from 1950 to 1963. Coins were produced consecutively from all 3 mints during just four years (1951 - 1954), while production did not take place at San Francisco mint for the remaining years. The obverse features a bust of Franklin with LIBERTY above his head, IN GOD WE TRUST below and the date directly in front of the bust. The reverse features the Liberty Bell with it's characteristic crack prominently displayed, which caused minor controversy upon it's release. You'll find the mint mark on the reverse of the coin just above the Liberty Bell. As is common for the era, Philadelphia minted coins do not carry a mint mark while the “D” is used for Denver and “S” is used for San Francisco.
