Owner's Comments

Mintage: 981,500
Obverse Dies: 8 Known

Eight different obverse dies are known for 1840 No Drapery coinage, including the Chin Whisker variety. Specialist know that Obverse 7 is atypical from other 1840 No Drapery dies due to weaker device and date details. Was Obverse 7 lapped more aggressively than other working dies before employed for coinage production? Reverse G also shows considerable weakness within the devices and could support the explanation of lapping prior to usage.

Plate Coin: Fortin 107, Obverse 7, Previously NGC MS66, Superior Luster with Peripheral Ranges of Rose/Blue Toning, the Reverse Being More Accentuated
