Capped Bust Half Dime challenge: can you attribute this marriage?
The "baby busties" were minted from 1829 thru 1837. There are 92 die marriages (a unique pairing of a specific obverse with a specific reverse) in the series. To us geeks who collect by die marriage, identifying the marriages quickly gives a leg up on cherrypicking the rare ones. I've attributed the coin below (and have no intention of buying it). Anyone want to take a crack?
1. As the seller points out by saying "183x," it's not an 1829. Removing those 18 marriages leaves you with only 74 marriages!
2. If you believe it's a marriage that has remarriages (e.g., the 1829 LM-13.1 or LM-13.2) then a correct attribution of the marriage is simply LM-13. (Don't need remarriage to score a "win")
3. A "win" gives you bragging rights but no material prizes. But you might meet fellow enthusiasts, and that ain't bad!
4. I'll reveal (my) attribution no later than Saturday morning. (But hey - maybe I got it wrong...)
