Description & Analysis

1830 half dimes are common enough at or near the Mint State level that collectors will be able to find a satisfactory example. Some will display striking weakness in the eagle's head and in the shield where it meets the eagle's right wing. Weakness may also be seen in the highest points of Liberty's portrait.

Six obverse dies and eight reverses were used in various combinations to produce 14 die marriages. These have been cataloged by Logan-McCloskey (LM) numbers, some of which include decimal divisions to indicate progressive die states. Rare marriages include LM-6 and LM-10, while LM-5 and LM-11 are very rare. LM-1, -2, -9, -12, -13 and -14 (photos) are somewhat scarce, the remaining four marriage common.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
