VALENTINE BIOGRAPHY

"Dr. Daniel Webster Valentine
March 7, 1863  January 24, 1932"

"Most collectors of the Liberty Seated design are familiar
with The United States Half Dimes by Daniel W. Valentine.

Valentine assembled several notable collections, including a
comprehensive collection of United States fractional currency,
for which he published "Fractional Currency of the United States"
in 1924. This publication was issued in a cloth bound edition
of 225 copies at $5.00 each, and in a limited, leather bound
edition of twenty-five numbered copies at $15.00 each. He
also assembled a collection of United States one dollar gold
coins, complete by mintmark.

Dr. Valentine is perhaps best remembered for his extensive
collection of United States half dimes, which he exhibited at
the American Numismatic Society in 1914. He published his
monograph United States Half Dimes in 1931, with the
American Numismatic Society, as #48 in their series
Numismatic Notes and Monographs."
