Lot Description
1840 H10C No Drapery MS66 S NGC. A needle-sharp, fully brilliant, and moderately prooflike premium Gem. Beautifully preserved, the reverse is nearly pristine and the obverse is also clean, with only a few very faint grazes in the right field. Stars were still entered by hand into the obverse die in 1840; the eighth star is repunched. The No Drapery, Stars type was only struck between 1838 and 1840, and high grade pieces are always in demand for type set purposes. Bold clash marks (as made) accompany the E in DIME. Population: 12 in 66 (omitting the star designation), 9 finer (1/05).
