1839-O Seated Liberty Dime
|Stack's Bowers||Auction||August 2011 Chicago ANA - Rarities Night||Aug-2011||CAC||1839-O Seated Liberty Dime. No Drapery. Large O. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC. Richly lustrous with deep gold, neon-blue, pale-champagne and rose iridescence enlivening both sides. Boldly struck, indeed, as bold in its design as many of the known proofs of the era -- every tiny detail is as crisp and sharp as Gobrecht intended. From the first year of New Orleans coinage in the denomination with obverse stars, and important as such to type collectors. Undoubtedly Condition Census for the issue and certainly among the finest examples we have seen in recent memory. This beauty may easily set a new standard for your Seated Liberty dime cabinet.

This early dime, of the No Drapery type, is in incredible preservation and is ideal on multiple levels—for inclusion in a type set, for addition to a specialized date set of Liberty Seated dimes, or simply as a trophy coin for a connoisseur.
