Description & Analysis

This is another fairly plentiful entry in the Capped Bust Half Dime series. The published mintage includes some dated 1832, but the use of three obverse dies and seven reverses indicates that plenty were minted with the date 1833. Like the example illustrated, many of these coins are poorly struck at their centers.

The same press might coin half dimes one day, dimes the next, and then half dimes again the day after that. Thus, the dies were frequently removed from the press, shelved and then reinstalled. Little care was taken to use the same die pair each time, with the result that the known dies for this date produced a total of 10 marriages.

Varieties LM-2 and LM-5 are the rare ones for 1833, with LM-6 being a little less so. LM-1 (photos) and LM-8 are slightly scarce, while the remaining marriages are all common. Illustrated is LM-4.1, the decimal numeral indicating that this is the earliest of three die state for that marriage.
