Half Dime Value - Moving Higher Yearly


A very desirable coin, your half dime value rises depending on the date, the mint that produced the coin, and how much wear and abuse it has received.
Half Dime Values for Bust and Seated Half Dimes
Scarce today, these small silver coins were often lost, many more melted for their silver content, and the majority of the rest simply wore out from use.
The earliest years 1794 to 1805 are all truly rare coins, most worth over $1,000. The years that followed also have their share of valuable half dimes, notably those of the mid 1860's.

Having a real affect on value, is the mint that coined your half dime. Since the survival rates of the different mints varies from high to very low the difficultly in finding an example for certain years when few are available, drives the value up.
And the hardest value to judge... condition.
Often having the largest impact on these old coin values is its state of preservation.
A typical example is a heavily worn coin worth $10 in "Good" condition rising in value to $50 in "Extremely Fine" condition. Follow the "Grading" images for each series, judge the condition, determine the grade and accurate value.
