    Highlight: its probably safe to say there are few collectors who do so specifically to look for half dimes, and half dimes exclusively Plenty of us gravitate towards big silver - be it U.S. dollars or foreign crowns - and lots folks go for one special series or another. But not many of us probably spend too much time looking at the smallest, original denomination that the United States made in silver, the half dime. Half dimesrized in the original Mint Act of 1792, and may be considered the first coins out of the gate, in that the famous, and famously expensive, half dismes were issued that year. Any of the half dimes produced in the last decade of the eighteenth century can be expensive enough that they scare off a collector who is new to them, but the good news to balance this is that

    The Numismatist, February 2001

    1/2/2001

    Highlight: Bust Half Dimes pattern or a regu- lar issue, but the fact remains that most surviving pieces are well worn. The Flowing Hair Liberty (1794-95) also was short-lived, giving way to the more attractive Draped Bust de- sign in 1796. An old story has it that this bust of Liberty was modeled af- ter Philadelphia society figure Ann Willing Bingham, but no known contemporary account corroborates the tale. Half dimes dated 1796 and 1797 pair the portrait with the Small Ea- gle reverse, while the Heraldic Eagle design was introduced with the coinage of 1800 (no half dimes were dated 1798 or 1799). In this form, half dimes were

    Highlight: Bust Half Dime Die Remarriages Richard Meaney Most collectors of Capped Bust Half Dimesamiliar with the concept of a die marriage. However, many are less familiar with the concept of a die remarriage. CBHD enthusiasts often treat a die remarriage as they do a die marriage when seeking to attribute a particular coin — thinking that reading the die state descriptions and examining the photograph of a die remarriage presented in Federal Half Dimese will explain the concept of die remarriages in order to ensure collectors can differentiate between die marriages, die remarriages, and die states. In The United States Half Dimes . Valentine noted “die breaks are listed as sub-varieties, being accidents,

    The D. Brent Pogue Collection, Masterpieces of United States Coinage, Part I

    Highlight: UNITED STATES HALF DIMES 1792 TO 1837 The silver half dimes in the D. Brent Pogue Collection are the finest ever collected and the finest ever to be auctioned. Authorized by the Mint Act of April 2, 1792, the half dime was the smallest silver denomination among the values specified. Construction of a mint was planned in Philadelphia (the nation’s capital at the time) , but in the meantime, in July 1792, 1,500 silver half dimes (called half dismes) were struck on the premises of John Harper, where certain equipment for the new Mint was being stored. The Philadelphia Mint went into operation in the autumn of 1792 and produced pattern coins. In March 1793 the first coins made there for circulation — copper cents — were released. No silver coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint until autum

There are moderate hairlines over the devices from handling and circulation, but the coin looks wholesome enough and would certainly be considered a typical specimen in terms of color and surface quality. What sets this coin apart is the pair of dies used to coin it. The obverse die was used to coin other 1830 half dimes but developed a crack from the rim down into Liberty's cap and curls, other light cracks formed to connect some of the stars

The nautical voyages between the two cities took an average of 10 to 12 days depending on the number of stops required by the ship delivering the mail. Both 1838-0 half dime obverse dies were of the No Stars variety as in the Philadelphia version for 1837 half dimes. There are two known varieties that were documented by Valentine as V-1 , Medium open date with a level date, and V-2, Low date almost touches milling with the date slanting up left to right, and with moderate to extreme levels of rust damage.

    Highlight: on Seated half dimes, dimes, quarters and half dollars In the early 1 990s, readers have gained new insights into the many interesting varieties in each of these series. These books expanded the interest in Seated coinage and helped to promote variety research on these beautiful silver coins over the next 20 years. Research studies on the early half dimes from the New Orleans branch mint helped to create many fast friendships while scholars worked to discover the secrets of these fascinating coins. Bill Harmon contributed greatly to the knowledge on 1848-0 half dimes with his landmark articles on this issue and later with his contributions to our research on 1840-O half dimeshe did not do a detailed study of the entire Seated half dimes series, he

Similarly, John Reich's overstuffed Capped Bust design of 1807 made a slower progress of contagion from half dollars to dimes in 1809, quarters in 1815, and half dimesion was adopted on the silver dollar at the end of December 1836, Mint Director Robert Maskell Patterson at once ordered that new matrixes, hubs, and working dies be made of the same design (without stars) for half dimes and dimes, as soon as practicable. The reverse was to consist of a simple wreath of laurel, enclosing the denomination and surrounded by our

    Highlight: The minting of half dimes was suspended tor a longer period, but in periods when half dimes were being minted, the mint made more half dimes than quarter dollars. Until 1843, in every year but one (1835), the U.S. mint made fewer quarter dollars than dimes. Until 1842, in every year (except for 1805) that the mint made both quarter dollars and half dimes, the number of quarter dollars was less. In the sixty-eight year period 1794-1857, half dollars were not minted in five years; half dimes were not minted in twenty-eight years; quarter dollars in twenty-one years; dimes were not minted in fourteen years. The U.S. Mint was being sensible: it would “hit them where they ain’t." The Mexican mint made many 8 reales and 2 reales, so the United States Mint made few dollars and quarters. The

The new text is the latest in a series of numismatic reference guides published by David Lawrence, and resembles his other fine books in terms of format and quality. However, this book goes beyond some of his earlier guides in that it contains areas of information not previously included.

    Highlight: just begun to produce half dimes in 1 863. Due to very low dennand for this silver coin, San Francisco mintages for the half dime never exceeded 280,000 pieces except for the years of 1872 and 1873. In fact the first year mintage of 14,742,500 pieces for the 1866 nickel was nearly twice the total mintage of 8,459,661 pieces for all half dimes apparent from these figures that the Mint fully intended to phase out the half dime and replace it with the new nickel coin. Low demand for the half dime in the post-war West was also thought to be the primary reason why half dimes produced at the Carson City Mint. With such relatively low mintages, it is reasonable to assume that all half dimes produced in a given yea

Except for a few unlisted varieties, there have been no facts discovered or additions made to the known and recorded history of the early half dimes since Mr. Newlin’s work in 1883. C. Steigerwalt discovered an unmentioned variety of the 1795 issue. There are several other new finds described herein, and some of the descrip- tions differ from those of Mr. Newlin.
