About this set: Capped Bust Lettered Edge Half Dollars are a very interesting series to collect. From the Early Federal period of United States coinage, yet the date set easily collectible in all grades up to mint state. Since the individual obverse and reverse dies were prepared by hand punching lettering and numbering into the die, significant variations are present in figure and lettering positioning and many minor errors as well. The major variations and die preparation errors have been grouped into the Redbook as major varieties. These major varieties are highly collectible and become a great deal more challenging to collect.
