    Valentine noted die breaks are listed as sub varieties being accidents and are of interest as they are the later impressions of a particular die as well as evidence of identity of dies found on more than one specimen Valentine did not specifically use the term die remarriage instead it appears that he labeled what we now call remarriages as later die states of a particular die marriage logan and mccloskey formally introduced the concept of die remarriages in Federal Half Dimes 1792 1837 as a result of conclusive determination of the emission sequence the order in which each die marriage and die remarriage was minted of CBHD According to Logan and McCloskey a die remarriage occurs if the same obverse reverse die pair is reunited in the screw press after either of the dies was used to strike ano

    se and reverse dies used for every known die marriage and die remarriage in the CBHD series In a sense the photos and die state descriptions have unintentionally reduced the collective ability of CBHD enthusiasts to properly attribute die remarriages Collectors are likely inclined to attempt to attribute a die remarriage merely by study of the photographs and die state descriptions provided by logan and mccloskey rather than by taking a few additional and very necessary steps if they are to make correct attributions In order to correctly attribute a die remarriage collectors should become familiar with Die State Descriptions page 52 of Federal Half Dimes 1792 1837 Emission Order for CBHD pages 62 64 and the Remarriage Charts that begin on page 65 Logan and McCloskey emphasize use of exact
