Bust Half Dimes

We recently obtained a very colorful 1829 half dime in PCGS MS-63, a somewhat prooflike 1829 half dime in PCGS MS-65, plus a wonderful example of the rare (R7) 1801 LM-1 in PCGS G-4, plus an 1800 LM-2 and two 1800 LM-4 half dimes!  We also have several in PCGS AU grades, plus a low-grade 1830 LM-5, an 1833 LM-2, a nice 1835 LM-2, and an 1836 LM-5.  We also have some nice PCGS graded half dimes (1830 LM-1.2 in AU-55, and 1836 LM-7 in MS-62)!  Our Capped Bust Half dimes for sale include some rare cuds such as the 1833 LM-8 and the 1835 LM-1.  I believe that early and Capped Bust half dimes are a great value, as you can get a rare coin for much less than a coin of equal rarity in the Bust Quarters or Bust Halves series.  Wanted:  1796/5, 1802, and any R-6 or better varieties.

1800 Half Dime LM-2 R7 NGC EF det., damaged
The fifth LM-2 I have handled out of 10 - 12 known. Really rare die pairing. The damage consists of scratches on the portrait and marks on the reverse. The diagnostics are very clear, and if you collect this series by die marriage, there aren't many coins to choose from and most of those are tied up in collections.
Price: $3,850
1800 LM-4 R7 PCGS Genuine, bent, F det.
A decent example of the very rare LM-4 die marriage. All diagnostics are clear. Approximately 9 known LM-4's, and this coin is the 5th one we have handled.
Price: $3,850
1800 LM-4 R7 PCGS Genuine, Bent, G details
About 8 - 9 known. I have handled 5 of these. A low grade one, but certainly an acceptable example of this rare die marriage.
Price: $2,950
1801 Half Dime LM-1 R7 PCGS G-4
WOW! An 1801 LM-1 half dime in a clean graded PCGS holder! Must be rare (it is, the PCGS population is 2 - - a Fine-12 which is in an advanced collection, plus this coin). A nice, clean coin with a clear die crack horizontally through the date, which is the diagnostic for LM-1. There are 6 confirmed 1801 LM-1's according to CoinFacts, and this is the second one we have handled.
Price: $10,250

1830 LM-1.2 V10 R-4 PCGS AU-55
Labeled on the slab as LM-1.1, but it has the die crack from the right wing tip to the arrow shafts, and die crack from top of R to top of I to left side of C. Therefore it is an LM-1.2. But it is a very nice high grade example of LM-1.2 with decent lustre and an original look. I sent this back to PCGS for reattribution and they still believe it is an LM-1.1. However, the die cracks I mentioned above are still on the coin, so I still contend that it is an LM-1.2. Was $495.
