This composite is for PCGS-graded coins that have been stickered by CAC. When adding coins to this set, they will be cross checked against CAC's certification verification to ensure legitimacy.

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.
