If so you need to check out the Newman Numismatic Portal hosting the;

Steve Crain Liberty Seated half dime die variety reference collection. Photography was performed by Steve Herrman, with the cooperation of W. David Perkins.

Amazing free online reference available to us. There is a downloadable spreadsheet file (in PDF) to accompany the photo files (link to SS on main page).

There is also Clint Cummins old site that has been around for quite awhile, I met Clint years ago online in the early days of coin clubs on the internet (early to mid 1990's).

Clint maintains a nice collection of Valentine varieties and an attribution guide that is helpful.

What a fantastic collection of varieties, obviously a labor of love, and has given me ideas on re-organizing my own Two Cent Piece variety collection. I find the toughest part besides the time in photographing everything, is the editing of photos to make them uniformly similar and building the database, I use Filemaker Pro as I am much more comfortable with it over a spreadsheet.

EDIT: To add another book I forgot to put on the post, The Complete Guide to Liberty Seated half dimes by Al Blythe

I started an Album for those and eventually gave up. Some of them are virtually impossible to find for a price that is reasonable.

I like half dimes, but the selection in coin shops is always geared to type sets, and I never buy them on the bay. Over the last 30 years I've found several of the keys and semi keys in raw state. I'll use the first link to figure out which V type my 1838-O is.....only three to choose from....

I like the odd denomination coins, and Gobrecht designs like the Seated Liberty series. What really impressed me is the sheer number of coins in the variety set and almost all of them are at least AU or better. I didn't count the number of different coins but it's got to be around 300-400? That is what shocked me and why I wanted to share the link, as it's a set most of us would never see otherwise, plus it's good info for anytime you acquire a half dime to check against these and see if you maybe have a rare variety.

This is the site I like for bust halves Overton varieties. I used it a lot when I was hunting down dramatic die clashes.

I don't know why I like Seated half dimes better than Seated dimes. It might be because I like 1/2 reale monogram cobs, which are about the same size.

@westcoin, Thank you for posting the links! Definitely a challenging series!

I have never had a customer who has tried to assemble a date-mint-major variety set. I can't even imagine trying to cover all of the lesser known varieties.

With one rather obvious exception, a date-mint-major set could be accomplished in F/VF, though some of the dates are brutal to locate in the marketplace. Even in F/VF, quite a few of the coins would be pricey.
