the 1832 half dime is LM-12 an R-2
the 1833 dime appears to be JR-1 in its first marriage.(The reverse die was used for this marriage, then two other die varieties and then re-married to 1833 Obv 1) This is a little tentative due to the sharp angle of the images and the fact that the key areas are out of focus. If it is right this is an R-3.
Can't help on the seated dime, not my field.
Could you recommend a reference guide for the capped dimes and half dimes
for attributing and what not.
Bust dimes the book is Early United States Dimes 1796 - 1837 by David Davis, Russell Logan, Allen Lovejoy, John McCloskey, and William Subjack
Published in 1984, long out of print and has never been reprinted. If you can find a copy expect to pay about $250. (They've come down, they used to be $400.) There are four copies on abebooks right now listed for between $255 and $350. There is one additional copy listed on Amazon for $425.
For the half dimes the book is
Federal Half Dimes 1792 - 1837 by Russell Logan and John McCloskey
Published in 1998, also long out of print and never reprinted. This one is a little easier to find (Because it is newer) but you can still expect to pay $125 or more for a copy. (It was $50 when it was published) There are two copes currently on Amazon, one for $175 and one for $250. The second one is also listed on Abebooks for $225.
I was afraid of that,
saw a couple on ebay on the dimes $225-$250 and was hoping there was something a little cheaper (guess not).
And I need the pictures and pick up points and what not just makes it somewhat easier like the overton half book I used to have.
Guess I'll start saving my penny's.
