After a period from 1806-1828 when no half dimes were produced, the Capped Bust half dime was introduced in 1829. Struck in 89.24% silver, this coin depicts Liberty wearing a cloth cap which is held by a band inscribed liberty. Her hair falls to her shoulder, where a brooch secures her gown. The reverse features an eagle with a shield, perched on a branch and clutching arrows. Add this prominent and obsolete silver half dime to your collection.
