Expert Comments

Ron Guth: In Proof condition, the 1840 No Drapery Dime is an extremely rare coin, with perhaps only five examples known.  Eliasberg had one; Pittman had one (this piece eventually went into the Richmond Collection; and Phil Kaufman had one (now ranked the finest of the several known).  We know for sure of one other example and a possible fifth. 

The Kaufman coin is a Cameo Proof.  The others are either Brilliant or partial Cameos.  No Deep Cameo Proof 1840 No Drapery Dimes have been seen.
