Current Finest Possible Set Rating

The basic set of half dimes from this era is a major numismatic undertaking, but when the varieties are added the collection grows to even greater stature. While there are still only one 1792 half disme and one 1802 half dime in the set, there are now three 1796 pieces, three 1797 varieties, two 1800 coins and two 1803 specimens plus a handful of additional Capped Bust examples. There is 45 years of American history here in a panorama of intriguing and beautiful designs. A great set!
