Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1833 Half Dime is a very common coin in circulated condition and in most Mint State grades, up to and including MS-64.  Gem examples are semi-scarce and even superb examples can be found with little effort.  The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census consists almost entirely of MS67 examples, and the finest known example is a single PCGS MS67+ (illustrated above).  Most 1833 Half Dimes show a frosty luster and a strong, evenly balanced strike.
