Expert Comments

Ron Guth

Thanks to some different-sized punches, 1835 Half Dimes come in at least four different, major varieties:

Small Date, Large 5C.
Small Date, Small 5C.
Large Date, Large 5C.
Large Date, Small 5C.

Of these varieties, the Large Date, Large 5C is the most common (by far), followed by the Small Date, Small 5C, then the Small Date, Large 5C and the Large Date, Small 5C (these two are of approximately equal rarity).
