Early Half Dollars


Early American Half Dollars, Bust Halves and Flowing Hair Halves

Early American Half Dollars

Minted 1794 to 1839

First issued in 1794, the Silver Half Dollar was one of the earliest denominations issued by the newly formed United States of America. The earliest Type was the Flowing Hair Half Dollar, followed by the Draped Bust Half and the Capped Bust Half. An interesting note is that later in 1836, reeding was added to the edge of the half dollar replacing the lettered edge, creating two varieties for that year with reeding continuing through 1839. This Type was replaced by the long-lived Seated Liberty design. Throughout this series there are hundreds of varieties, from minor to quite significant, making these early series quite exciting areas to collect.
