My lone Capped Bust Half for 1827 is this Overton O-134 (a Square Base 2 type) graded PCGS F12. I think it's really choice for such a grade!

As much as I like them, has anyone noticed its like 90% Capped bust and large copper cent coins now?

The balance will change as my halfcrown collection again opens up!

In 1827 the United States had only three main types of (non-gold) coinage: Classic Head Half Cents, Coronet Head large cents and Capped Bust half dimes, dimes, quarters, and half dollars; and gold coins prior to 1851 are scarce and usually valuable.

As we go back further, the half dimes, quarters and dimes become scarce as well; so most collectors will stick to large cents or half dollars. Once you get back before 1800 most anything US gets expensive so that's when all of the world coins usually kick in!! I promise it gets a lot more interesting from the 18th c. backwards.

I do have one other 1827 I can show to change it up a bit, though...

1827-A Silber Groschen - Prussia
Very worn, and bent!

I think @jbuck had the perfect response

Well, when we hit the 1790s, the U.S. types will start to peter out, and it will be largely "world coins" thereafter.

My 1826 coins include a farthing




Apart from a bit of pitting, this is a nice piece, probably gFine and a lot of detail.

Notice how young and attractive they have made George IV look. In 1829 64 was like 84 in today's years.

Also the first of 4 of my 1820s halfcrowns





This is actually quite worn of all my 1820s coins - the condition is just under VG - but its clean and nice and a beautiful coin.

Notice the elaborate obverse with a knights helmet and foliage around an elaborate shield. George IV just loved this type of frippery.

Also a really mutilated and worn 1826 shilling




Like the 1827 penny - 1826 dated shillings are very common in New Zealand, mostly worn like this and its possible a lot were bought here deliberately ages ago (Like the 1840s, as we did not have responsible government before then)

Love the environmental toning on the halfcrown, Princetane!

My 1826 coins are nicer than my 1827 ones!

Farthing:

Halfpenny:

Penny (yes, that IS original mint lustre!):

Shilling:

Halfcrown (cleaned at some time in the past, not by me!):

LCS had this listed as 1896. I laughed and bought it.
