Ron Guth:

The 1839-O Dime is the third most common date of the No Drapery series. However, it is still a very desirable date and one that is hard to find in Mint State. Most Uncs. are low-end (MS62 to MS63), but there are a few Gems that turn up on the market from time to time. This is somewhat surprising, because the same is not true of the 1838-O and the 1840-O Dimes. The best 1839-O Dime certified by PCGS is a single PCGS MS67+...this example has incredible color and eye appeal. Many, if not most, 1839-O Dimes show weakness at the denticles and on other high points of the coin (this is typical of coins made at the New Orleans mint, and fully struck examples are rare exceptions).
