1840 Drapery Dime, MS64+ ★
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).

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
