Bust Half Dime (1792)
Like other coins, the value of a Bust Half Dime can vary greatly based on the coin’s mint year, edition and overall physical condition. For example, a Capped Bust variety from 1829 in good condition may trade for about $35. A Draped Bust variety from 1796 in uncirculated condition may trade for nearly $10,000. If you have a Bust Half Dime from a select year or a coin that appears to be in impeccable physical condition, you may want to consider having your coin graded by a professional coin grading company such as PCGS or NGC.
These coin grading companies go to great lengths to verify your coin’s authenticity and metal content. They also thoroughly scrutinize every last detail of your coin to assign it a grade based on its condition. By taking the time to have your coin graded, you can have peace of mind that you have a genuine coin and a good idea of its fair market value.
