While Capped Bust halves were still being minted the Philadelphia Mint explored other various pattern coins in 18 in additional to the Liberty Seated design variations that would eventually replace the Capped Bust mint type.Why is this significant to the contemporary counterfeit Capped Bust half dollar collector?As a result of reanalyzing Davignon’s (2010) attributions, and new discoveries reported on cccbhcc.com, this article has created new, preliminary attributions, labeled in the tables below as ‘New Desig.’, for each variety in each family.

The concluding assumption here is that each of these counterfeiting operations bought their planchets from a common, third party distributor and at approximately the same time.The results showed a majority of pieces were made from billon and German silver, and rarely brass (BR). In contrast, the cheaper German silver alloy is considered a later alloy which started to be used by counterfeiters during the second half of the 1830s.century) due to its more expensive silver content, and is rarely found on U. German silver was advantageous to billon in that the color more closely mimicked real silver and was cheaper to produce given the absence of precious metal content requirements.In addition, it is assumed those varieties without edge dies shared between more than one family or singleton also bought their planchets from the same source closely in time to the other varieties made from each family.Between these three families and one singleton at least eight different lettered edge dies are known (labeled 1-A through 8-H in tables 1 to 3, and in figure 1), along with a reeded edge (RE), and a plain edge (PE; presumably just not sent through the castaing machine).

primarily left with just the surviving physical evidence to help us reconstruct this history.
