I think the transitional reverse is only on the 1840-O without drapery.

Just grabbed this one. The price guides don't do the difficulty justice. Now I only need one more to finish the collectible circulation strike portion of the set!

Another type acquired. 1795. What kind of bird is on the reverse? Not a good rendering of an Eagle in my opinion.

I was able to pluck a raw 1860-S fine+/- dime off of Brian's website yesterday. ElmerFlick

Well, I've hit a standstill and still need only 3 coins to complete my seated half dime set. I've liked this project enough that I decided to obtain as much as possible of a Dansco album seated dime set. I'm about 40 coins into the 121 coin set already.

Anyone Know Where I Can Find A Seated Dime Album?

So after I posted this, the used one on eBay for $80 sold, and someone listed another on eBay for $130(!). No thanks. I'm not crazy or desperate to buy one but I think the seller certainly is nuts. Anyways, I did a deeper internet search and found a new one at the Subway Stamp Shop for $40 + shipping. I was surprised to see it wasn't listed as out of stock. Fingers crossed I don't get an email saying they don't have any and need to refund me. ElmerFlick

Hope this isn't posted in the wrong place. Since my seated half dime project is quickly coming to a close and I'm looking for a new project, does anyone know where I can find a new or gently used Dansco or Whitman seated dime album? I'd prefer Dansco, but can live with Whitman so long as they are comparable with respect to content. I've found that Whitman albums usually includes more Proof Only spots which is somewhat annoying to me as I don't collect Proofs. Yes, I've seen eBay. Thanks,

Thanks all. Didn't realize these were often poorly struck.

Bought this 1875-S today from a LCS and noticed 12 of the 13 stars were well defined and ornate. The star near 1:00, however, is a mess. What likely caused this? Die chip? Filled with grease? Any ideas? Thanks, ElmerFlick

Thanks jbuck, Wan & Germanicvs! This has been a fun project to work on. I decided to try completing the entire Dansco album minus the 1802. I'm down to 5 Federal era coins and 3 seated. Here is my latest arrival - tougher than the price guides would suggest.

Very tough 1853 no arrows New Orleans mint coin. The diagnostics look correct. Down to the final 6 for the seated half dime set.



Not the most beautiful 1838-O, but still pretty tough.

Here is a very difficult & underrated coin from the seated half dime series. Most you will see have been heavily cleaned. After several months of searching, I finally found this one for sale via an internet search.
