Date – Mint Rarity:

The real rarities can be found in the proofs since all of them are rare with some known for only a handful and some upward of only 30 examples and the 1837 Capped Bust Half Dime might not exist anymore.

Proofs are always struck with specially prepared dies and often struck more than once to impart sharp details. Proofs can be toned but they will display a reflective or flat looking fields with sharply struck details.

Grade – Condition:
G4 Capped Bust Dime value ranges from $40 to $60 but when they reach the AU50 (About Uncirculated) they can be worth $200 to $500 depending on the date or if it’s a variety. The 1834 3 over inverted 3 is worth around $500 in AU50 but the 1835 Large 5c is around $200 so the rarity of a variety is not determined by the mintage of the date it’s included in but by how many have been reported over the years.
In MS63 (Mint State) you can buy most Capped Bust Half Dimes for less than $1,000 and most as low as $700 and when you consider the mintage that’s not bad deal for a coin of this type.
