Description & Analysis

Despite a lower than usual mintage for a Philadelphia Mint half dime, this date is not rare. Its availability is comparable to that of the 1843 across most grades.

A dramatically repunched date variety is found for 1844 (photos), yet this is actually more common than the normal date. It is nonetheless popular, attracting attention from collectors who may not seek half dimes as a series.
