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.

R-2
1829 LM-16.2 38634 1829 H10C MS63 2 0 20

R-1
1831 LM-1.3 38656 1831 H10C AU55 1 2 12
I consider this remarriage with the retained cud to be an R-4 die state of an R-1 die marriage.

1832 LM-8.2 38671 1832 H10C MS61 1 0 10
R-3 as a die marriage. VERY difficult die remarriage...rated R-5 by JRCS.
1832 LM-8.3 38672 1832 H10C AU55 1 1 11
R-3 as a die marriage...but the 1832 LM-8.3 is likely the most difficult 1832 LM-8 remarriage to find. Remarriage is rated R-5 by JRCS
1832 LM-8.4 38673 1832 H10C AU55 1 2 12

R-6. ex-Russ Logan. Plate coin in half dime text
1832 LM-9.2 38676 1832 H10C AU58 1 0 10
R-6 die marriage, but this remarriage is an R-7. This is the finest known of about four examples extant of the remarriage
1832 LM-10.1 38677 1832 H10C MS63 1 0 10
R-3
1832 LM-10.2 38678 1832 H10C XF45 1 0 10
R-3 die marriage. This remarriage received an R-6 rating in the latest JRCS half dime census.
1832 LM-10.3 38679 1832 H10C AU55 1 0 10
An R-3 die marriage, but Logan and McCloskey state the LM-10.3 remarriage is the rarest of the LM-10 remarriages. Likely R-6 or a bit tougher.
1832 LM-10.4 38680 1832 H10C AU58 1 0 10
R-3 die marriage, scarcer as a remarriage
1832 LM-11.1 38681 1832 H10C XF45 1 1 11
R-5
1832 LM-11.2 38682 1832 H10C MS61 1 0 10
ex-Eric Newman, when it was in an NGC MS63 holder. Sports a gold CAC sticker

R-2
1833 LM-4.3 38695 1833 H10C XF45 1 1 11
R-2 die marriage. This late die state with an "internal cud" in the vicinity of OF A(MERICA) on the reverse is likely an R-5 to R-6 die state.
1833 LM-5 38696 1833 H10C XF40 1 0 10
R-7. Of six known examples, this one sits in the middle of the census

Remarriage is often mis-attributed. At least R-5 and probably R-6 when attributed properly.

1836 LM-2 38726 1836 H10C AU58 1 2 12
R-3. High grade examples of this die marriage are way more difficult to find than the R-3 rating would suggest
