Welcome! I wanted to create a site that contains useful information on bust half dollars (Flowing Hair, Draped, and Capped Bust). Visitors can obtain information such as variety attribution, rarity, mintage information, and top population appearance data. I hope that it is found to be useful information for those who visit as I will try and condense info from various published sources as best I can. Anyone who would like to contribute to the site may contact me at any time. Every die state and die marriage is  listed here! New info going up frequently! If interested in advertising, please get in touch.  Check the What's New page for updates!


All sponsors have a nice selection of Bust Halves! Check them out!


info on every bust half may be found below:










Now I have an affiliated Coin Blog. Musings, thoughts, experiences, and COINS. This blog is intended to be upbeat and non-bashing, and based on actual observation and experience. Will post on something whenever I have the urge. Check it!
