Description & Analysis

This extremely rare issue (two known) has been a mystery for generations. It displays the Robert Ball Hughes interpretation of the Seated Liberty figure, yet there is no drapery underneath Liberty's left arm. Some have speculated that this feature was eradicated by overpolishing of the die, but all other design elements are bold, refuting this notion. Instead, current opinion holds that this was a transitional issue created to show the new Liberty figure as first conceived. The drapery was thus likely added to balance the design, but this fails to explain its presence on the regular issue dimes and other silver denominations of 1840. Exactly why this rare anomaly was created has been lost to history.
