Early Half Dollars
Part of the allure to me is that it is something I can claim as my own. My Father has a substantially complete Morgan Dollar collection and completing it is beyond my financial means and expertise. The Bust Cap Half Dollars is a smaller series consisting of 34 coins. 29 of the 34 coins had mintages greater than 1,000,000 coins which provide a smaller rarity premium.
I have 6 dates in about good to fine condition and 1 date in EF condition. My goal is to continue to accumulate 1-2 coins per year from the various coin shows that are hosted on the Front Range. These coins should hold their value well and provide years of enjoyment.
Further if I choose to truly specialize in these coins, die variety specialization could provide more years of collecting this series.
