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 17921837." One die marriage has been discovered since publication of the LoganMcCloskey 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 problemfree condition; seek AU or better coins for R4 and more common die marriages, XF or better coins for R5 die marriages, and VF or better coins for R6 and rarer die marriages.

WOW!
What an impressive accomplishment and set! It has it all  grade and condition, rarity, pedigree, and plate coins from the Half Dime book. Well done.
...and then there was only one left. Great job and progress.
Beautiful set BD! Keep on keeping on!
