    Here's one of my half dimes that I ID'ed as LM-11 (Logan/McClaskey).
    The only reason I'm posting it is because IF I have ID'ed it correctly it's a Rarity 6 (R-6).
    According to the book Federal Half Dimes/1792-1837, Edition 1, 1998, by Russell J. Logan and John W. McCloskey, Rarity 6 is "Very Rare", approximately 13-30 known.
    Of course more may have been identified since 1998.


    Looking at my images I personally would have graded it XF-45.
    The images are nice and large but the coin is only the size of a modern dime.
    That makes grading a bit tougher.

    I'll keep it anyway :happy:

    I concur, definiely rev F, star 6 doesn't point at the headband so 9 and 10 are out, star 13 points higher up on the curl than on LM-12, so it is LM-11.

    Not a bad day when you're rummaging through things you've had for a while, and you discover an R-6!
