Description

1840-O H10C No Drapery MS60 PCGS. V-4a. The main distinguishing factor between 1840-Os is the size of the mintmark, with this piece displaying a Small O. A recut date with several recut stars identifies this specific sub-variety of Small Os. Heavy recutting is apparent on stars 5 and 6. V-4 and V-4a share the same obverse and reverse dies, but V-4a is a later die state, with significant die cracks on the reverse. In addition to the die cracks listed for V-4, this variety shows a crack from the T in UNITED to the D in DIME, and a pronounced die crack from the rim to the E in DIME, bisecting the C in AMERICA. The obverse has a pleasing golden-red hue, and the reverse is frosted and brilliant. The strike is also sharp. Al Blythe writes in The Complete Guide to Liberty Seated Half Dimes that he considers V-4a to be very scarce. (Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 232V, PCGS# 4322)
