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.

Lovely example with a light circulation cameo.

i love how absurdly large the date is on that one. like they were using the half dollar punches or something.
I collect low grade large cents. I currently have >230 Sheldon varieties and >235 middle date Newcomb varieties.

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.

For your dime project, I recommend Brian Greer. He wrote the book.

As my quote below suggests, dimes aren't my favorite. But early San Francisco coinage is, and this prompted me to get an 1858-S dime. That's the extent of my dime collection.

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

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

the scrawny chicken is my favorite bald eagle representation. its so majestic. you can see why they were debating between it and the turkey for the national bird.

Nice 1795 - I can't decide if it's a VG10 or a F12. Either way it's a beauty with no damage just old honest wear. I'm leaning more towards the VG8/10 range as the obverse is pretty weak in strike around the stars and rim, but overall a really cool half dime. Elmer you've crushed this set in a relatively short time.
