Description:
Impressive 1841 Dime With Drapery, PR63 Cameo
Possibly Unique
1841 10C PR63 Cameo NGC. Ex: Richmond Collection. Very few proof 1841 dimes were coined in Drapery and No Drapery variations, and both are extremely rare today. Only two examples have been certified, both by NGC. The Phil Kaufman specimen offered here is an NGC PR63 Cameo, and contains drapery below Liberty's elbow. An NGC PR53 coin does not show drapery. In our 1994 American Numismatic Association sale, in which we presented what is now the Kaufman With Drapery coin (lot 6454), we wrote:

"According to Breen (1977) and Brian Greer's (1992) references on this series, all but one of the known proofs show no drapery at Liberty's elbow, this design element having been polished away by heavy lapping of the dies. There is one coin mentioned with the drapery at the elbow, that coin being in a 'New York specialist set.' Of course, we do not know who the 'N.Y. specialist' is, nor do we know if this is this coin from that set. However, we can speculate that if it is from the specialist's collection, then most likely the With Drapery proof dime of this year is unique. If not from that collection, then this is a second example."

Again from the 1994 ANA sale (which, of course, applies to the current Kaufman specimen), we mention that: "The most notable marks for pedigree purposes are: a short scratch between the rock and star 1 on the obverse, and on the reverse there is a thin scratch out from the E in ONE and the E in Dime, as well as some planchet roughness just below the IM of DIME."

Presented below is a roster of both No Drapery and With Drapery 1841 proof dimes:

No Drapery Dime
1. Proof.
Numismatic Review #3, page 29.

2. PR53 NGC. 1993 ANA (Heritage, 7/1993), lot 5212, $46,750; Heritage (10/2001), lot 6029, $47,500. This may be the same coin earlier offered by New Netherlands in their 57th sale, lot 466, later to Kagin's (11/1973), lot 1107.

With Drapery Dime
1. PR63 Cameo NGC.
1994 ANA Sale (Heritage, 7/1994), lot 6454, $38,500; Bowers and Merena (3/1997), lot 2215, $14,300; Richmond Collection (David Lawrence, 3/2005), lot 1236, $46,000

An impressive strike brings out crisp definition on the mildly frosted design elements of the Select Cameo Kaufman coin, helping to enhance even more their contrast with the unfathomably deep reflectivity of the fields. The bright surfaces display a warm gold-champagne cast, accented with speckles of soft sky-blue and beige patina. Were it not for a few inoffensive hairlines in the obverse fields, and the couple of faint marks alluded to above, this otherwise delightful piece would grade even higher. Truly outstanding in all respects!
