View Set Composition  ( Shop )

Coinage of half dimes was resumed in July 1829 after a 24-year hiatus. The then-current Capped Bust design by William Kneass (after an earlier design by John Reich) was adopted. Issued for only nine years, this series is a bit unusual in that there are no real "better dates." All are worth roughly the same which makes this small set very possible to complete without a huge outlay of funds.
