||1839 10C No Drapery MS66+ NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Of the first four Philadelphia Seated dime dates, the 1839 is the only one not separated into multiple Guide Book varieties, leading many collectors to underrate the issue. This MS66+ example with its well-defined devices and satiny luster under pink, gold, and blue patina is a coin that rewards the numismatist who takes the time to inspect it closely. Census: 18 in 66 (1 in 66+), 21 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $3.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
