    Hello, my name is Okbustchaser, and I'm a bust half addict...

    It's been 3 hours and 17 minutes since I bought another bust half dollar.

    Realistically I need to slow down. I've bought more in the last 4 months than in the previous 4 years.

    Bust half is addictive. Great design, good size and with good history (being the workhorse during that time period).

    Coin addiction, serious stuff ....I think it helps if you just come to terms with it, finally accept what you are....and keep on buying coins:):):):)

    Gee, never would've guessed that from your username. ;)

    Bust halves? What's not to like? I've always liked them, like most people, but lately I've been liking them a bit more.

    Well, I don't collect them but I have a long-time friend who ONLY collects them, both the draped and bust types. His collection has over 400 of them he says. And frankly the ones he has shared with me are OUTSTANDING!!

    I became an addict years ago. I found a way to take the edge off. Buy a Bust Dime or Quarter. It helps me to take my mind away from the Bust Half.;)

    I currently only have about 300 capped bust halves, my real problem is that over 200 of them are 1827s.

    Yes, just an R-1, but a DM I still needed. I really like the looks of this one from the pics.

    With this one I'm now back up to 84...creeping back up on the magic 100 mark.

    Covid-19 made me OCD and the first thing I do each morning is to visit CT. I may have spent 3-4K since February. Currently, I believe if the dispute AOC may remove Lincolns Face Cent.

    I used to be a bust chaser too but got slapped in the face too many times and decided to collect coins.

    I think you're confusing slapping with spanking!

    By the way, I enjoy all of the bust halves that you've been posting over the years. I don't collect that series right now but like them a lot.
