Rare Mint State Grade, Old Album Toning, Florida Collection. . 1840 With Drapery dimes are very challenging to locate in mint state grades as few exist. Let's start the description with PCGS population report as a reference. Six total in mint state with following distribution. MS62 (1), MS63 (2), MS64 (1) and MS65 (1). There are few auction appearances reported on CoinFacts. The offered example last sold at Heritage auction during April 2006 and has been in strong hands since that time. The Florida consignor recently made an upgrade, so this piece comes to market. Surfaces are naturally reflective and probably dipped years ago, and have fully retoned. The obverse has a faint gold center that transitions into deep rose/gold and then deep blue immediately at the rims. The reverse is similar with a wider blue rim surrounding the legend. This example is very well struck with no reverse weakness as seen on other higher grade pieces. Fields and devices are blemish free. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Serial number 1501423-002. This is one of the few opportunities for advanced Seated dime collectors to secure a mint state 1840 With Drapery dime so please consider carefully.
