Type Coin Collecting: half dimes and dimes

On this page,I continue type coins with half dimes and dimes. All half dimes minted before 1805 are scarce (and therfore expensive for the first three varieties). Dimes did not kick off until 1796. Again the first two types are quite valuable. Many of the other early series of dimes are scarce. However,there are a few common dates,which will satisfy the type collector. For more information about a coins series, click on the coin type (note I do not have information about every series). To purchase coins (or browse) click on the auction entries.
