Description & Analysis

This was the first mintage of half dimes at the Philadelphia Mint to reach six figures since 1862, and the pace of production increased steadily for this denomination's few remaining years. Examples of this issue are noticeably more available across all grades than for P-Mint half dimes of the 1863-68 period.
