1795 50C XF45 PCGS #6052

My first-year-of-issue example of the Flowing Hair half dollar is a 1794 in PCGS VF-25. This more-common 1795 is much finer...

1797 50C F15 PCGS #6060

A mint-state example of this rare type is out of reach for me, so I had to settle for this "Fine" specimen...

1806 50C Pointed 6, Stem MS63 PCGS #6071

My first-year-of-issue representative of the Draped Bust, Large Eagle Half Dollar is a perfectly nice 1801 in PGCS EF-45. However, this 1806 example is much more visually-appealing, and it garners a few more Registry points...

1830 50C Large 0 MS64 PCGS #6157

My first-year-of-issue example of the capped bust half is a mostly good-looking 1807 that has just enough tiny gouges to earn it a grade of PCGS MS-60. This gloriously toned 1830 is far prettier to behold.

1837 50C Reeded Edge MS64 PCGS #6176

My first-year-of-issue example of the reeded-edge Capped Bust half with the "50 CENTS" reverse is an 1836 in AU-58. It''s decent, but this 1837 is far nicer.

1885 50C PR66 PCGS #6446

Somewhat nicer and scarcer than my first-year-of-issue example (an 1866 in PCGS MS-64).

1905 50C PR67 PCGS #6552

My first-year-of-issue representative of the Barber Half is a stunning, blue 1892 in PCGS MS-65. This 1905 example is even prettier.

1939 50C MS68 PCGS #6606

My first-year-of-issue representative of the Walking Liberty Half is a 1916-S in PCGS MS-65. This 1939 is much more common and a bit more pristine.

1962 50C PR68DCAM PCGS #96703

My first-year-of-issue example of the Franklin Half is a 1948 in PCGS MS-66 FBL, a nice white specimen. This 1962 Proof, however, garners a few more points...

1992-S 50C Silver PR70DCAM PCGS #96834

My first-year-of-issue representative of the Kennedy Half is a 1964 PCGS PR-67CA, with Accented Hair. This "perfect" 1992-S Half garners a few more Registry points...
