Only two examples are known of the Proof 1841 No Drapery Dime: an NGC PR67+ and a circulated NGC PR53 example. Clearly, choices are limited for the collector seeking a high-quality example.
The NGC PR67+ 1841 No Drapery Dime first appeared in the Col. E.H.R. Green collection, then went to Eric Newman, who purchased it out of a partnership deal he had with St. Louis dealer, B.G. Johnson. Mr. Newman paid $250 for the coin, which seems trifling today, but it was a considerable sum back then. When Newman's Dime sold in 2013, it realized $305,500 -- another amount that was far from trifling. Eugene Gardner purchased the coin from the Newman sale, then resold it in 2015.
This is a coin that is relatively known outside the circle of Liberty Seated Dime collectors. It deserves recognition as one of the rarest of all U.S. coins.
