Ron Guth: All 1839 Half Dimes are of the No Drapery type.  Compared to the other dates of this type, the 1839 is relatively common.  Collectors should have no trouble finding either circulated or Uncirculated examples.  Most Mint State examples are in the MS63 to MS64 range, and even Gems are available in sufficient quantities to keep the price affordable.  The very best 1839 No Drapery Half Dimes appear at the MS67 level.

Most examples of this date are well struck.  High-end examples feature intense, frosty luster and colorful eye appeal.
