Description & Analysis

The 1833 half dollar is a rather boring entry in this otherwise popular coin series. There are no standout varieties meriting a separate line item in catalogs. Mint State examples are plentiful, though gems are fairly scarce.

Numismatists have identified 15 die marriages resulting from the use of 13 obverses paired with 14 reverses. Most of these dies were used too long, resulting in coins having worn, distorted features at their peripheries. 1833 was the year that coins were last struck within the old mint facility of 1792. The workers seem to have been distracted by this move and not inclined to replace worn dies in a timely manner. All 1833 half dollar varieties are fairly common, with the exception of O-115, of which just about three dozen examples are known.
