Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1831 Half Dime has a hefty mintage of over 1.2 million pieces, and, like most dates of this type, it is easy tpo locate in just about any condition, including Mint State.  Over two hundred have been graded in the MS62 to MS64 range and even gems at the MS65 and MS66 levels are fairly plentiful.  A small handful of MS7 examples are known.  The finest is the colorful MS68 pictured above. 

Most examples show a strong strike, with ample detailing of the hair and feathers.
