About this set: In 1998, Russell J. Logan and John W.McCloskey described 91 die marriages and an additional 31 remarriages in "Federal Half Dimes 1792-1837." One die marriage has been discovered since publication of the Logan-McCloskey text, bringing the total number of die marriages and remarriages known to 123. My collecting goals with this set: Obtain every die marriage and remarriage in problem-free condition; seek AU or better coins for R-4 and more common die marriages, XF or better coins for R-5 die marriages, and VF or better coins for R-6 and rarer die marriages.
