Description & Analysis

For the half dimes dated 1801 a single reverse die was paired with two obverses. Both marriages are noted for major die failures which aid in the attribution of these varieties.

About a third of these coins were actually delivered in 1802, a not unusual situation with the early U. S. Mint. The vast majority of survivors are poorly and/or unevenly struck, and this can make grading such coins quite challenging.

Variety LM-1 is very rare, while LM-2 (photos) is scarce but obtainable in worn condition.
