Fortin-104. Large O.

The Stars Obverse type with No Drapery was short-lived with coins struck from 1838 through 1841. New Orleans produced only two issues employing this design and the 1839-O is the more available. There are a few dozen known in Uncirculated and around five or six Gem to Superb Gem pieces exist, including a PCGS MS67+ in the Simpson collection and another PCGS MS67, owned by a Pennsylvania specialist.

This amazing coin is lightly toned in pale champagne and lilac hues and it is essentially “as made” with rich mint frost drizzled on either side and a virtual absence of marks. The strike is very sharp as this is an early die state of this variety with only a small crack seen from the right ribbon end down to the reverse rim at 5:00. PCGS has only graded three New Orleans dimes at this lofty level and I have never personally owned another Liberty Seated New Orleans dime of any date which was as technically close to perfection as this amazing example.

Bowers and Merena 1/08: 108, graded MS67 by PCGS, realized $35,650.

This is an exceptional coin which will appeal to the Seated Dime specialist, the collector of Gem New Orleans silver or the type collector seeking the absolute finest quality.

CAC has approved two in this grade with none finer.
