Description & Analysis

The 1855 half dime is noticeably more scarce across all grades than the 1853-54 Philadelphia Mint pieces, and gems are very elusive. The typical example is less than fully struck, with weak denticles being especially common. Also a distraction with these coins are the oft seen die-clash impressions.
