A new addition to my "Busted" my budget on Half Dimes collection.
Hated to see my MS 64 1833 half dime sitting all alone in this short set, but at the same time it was the most expensive coin I've ever bought. So, my budget was thin, hence the name of the set.
Came across this one on Ebay and liked the look of it and quite frankly wanted to be able to do more research and study on die marriages. I need coins to be able to work with them and make assessments on marriages.
Date - 1836
Capped Bust Half Dime
Mintage - 1,900,000
Variety - LM-4
Rarity - R2 - Common
This one is below my optimal collecting grade, but a welcome 2nd coin for this set. I really would like to keep this set above AU-55, but maybe sometime I'll start the 123 coin "variety" set with all the die marriages from this short 9 year run series.
Waiting on my latest coins to be graded, they are scheduled for grading now, so maybe I'll get grades by the end of the week.
PS - Today's picture is of the 1836 Bust Half Dime Reverse.
