Early Half Dimes comprise Flowing Hair, Draped Bust and Capped Bust types. The Flowing Hair type was designed by Robert Scot who did much of our early coinage. This type was minted for only two years; 1794 and 1795. It was replaced by the Draped Bust type, which was minted from 1796 until 1805. These were also designed by Scot. After a run of 24 years in which no half dimes were produced, the Mint once again decided to produce them in 1829. The Capped Bust variety was designed by William Kneass.
Later in 1837, Designer Christian Gobrecht, who would later become famous for his "Gobrecht Dollars" designed the Liberty Seated Half Dime which ran from 1837 until the half dime's demise in 1873. There are numerous varieties of half dimes such as: No Stars, Stars, Arrows at Date and Legend on Obverse.
