Lot Description
1839-O H10C No Drapery MS66 NGC. Medium O. A fully lustrous Premium Gem, one of the finest we have ever handled. In fact, it is one of the best that has ever been certified. PCGS has never graded one of these better than MS65, and the NGC Census Report tells us they have only seen two at this grade level, with a single finer MS67. This is only the second MS66 example of the date that we have ever handled in auction, and it has been 15 years since the last one. The surfaces are remarkable with satiny silver luster and amazing design definition. Both sides have a hint of champagne toning near the borders, but the coin is essentially white. The reverse die is shattered with extensive and heavy cracks in various directions. Census: 2 in 66, 1 finer (1/08).
