Greetings, I have started working on a pricing guide for the capped bust half dimes. If anyone wishes to send some information contact me at aimrite47 (at) I have used a combination of the two coin publication guides, sellers of half dimes and some eBay sales to this point.

Thanks. Don

Lot 252.        1795 Flowing Hair Half-NGC 45 0-129 Rarity 5. This popular var. has the final “s” of states over o D. Rare, w/less than 75 total coins in all grades thought to survive, w/this one likely in the lower condition census. Frankly, this coin is undergraded as it has full luster under absolutely beautiful, orig iridescent toning. Formerly in the James A. Stack collection, and later Dr. Geo. F. Oviedo Jr. collection of halves, which included the Lord St. Oswald, finest known small head 1795, obtained from the mint in 1795, both 1796 varieties, a 1797 & a 1838-o. Exceptional eye appeal, true rarity, & very strict grading combine to make this the most impressive early half we’ve ever offered

This will be on the April 6, 2013 Coin & Currency Auction
