Ron Guth:

The 1849 Half Dime has the second largest mintage of any Half Dime date from the 1840s. However, the date is split into three major varieties: 1849 Normal Date, 1849/8, and 1849/6. While the overdates take up some of the mintage, the remaining Normal Dates are still relatively common and are valued only slightly higher than the most common P-Mints.

Most 1849 Half Dimes are struck well and show strong details, especially in the central areas of the dies.
