Description

1840 Drapery Dime, MS64+
Underrated Conditional Rarity

1840 10C Drapery MS64+ NGC. Fortin-101. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Remarkable obverse toning secured the Star designation. Concentric bands of peach-gold, cherry-red, ocean-blue, and lilac ensure the eye appeal. The reverse displays attractive golden-brown toning with glimpses of aquamarine, sun-gold, and fire-red at the margin. Smooth except for a couple of small marks near stars 9 and 10. Struck from a single die pair, the 1840 Drapery dime is surprisingly rare in Uncirculated grades. NGC reports only six such coins, including 2 in MS61 and 2 in MS62. Census: 2 in 64 (1 in 64+), 1 finer (10/13).
Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $5.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2383, PCGS# 4578)
