Description:
Important AU53 1795 Ten Dollar
BD-1, 13 Leaves Reverse
1795 $10 13 Leaves AU53 PCGS. Breen-6830, Taraszka-1, BD-1, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a, without any of the cracks indicating state b for either side. The BD-1 1795 eagle is one of the most available of the Small Eagle ten dollar die pairs, scarce in an absolute but not a relative sense; the authors of Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties state that "there are likely are more known for this variety than all the other 1795 [eagle] varieties combined." Still, their estimate of 225 to 325 pieces known leaves far fewer survivors than there are interested collectors, a surefire recipe for high prices, particularly in Extremely Fine and better grades.
Though this AU53 example shows a measure of rub which precludes a Mint State designation, the still-lustrous butter-yellow surfaces show more Mint-made artifacts than post-striking abrasions. Adjustment marks (present across Liberty's face), for example, outnumber other marks; the lower and right obverse show apparent strike-through depressions, possibly from thread; and the upper left reverse field has a shallow planchet depression.
None of this is to suggest that this is in any way an unattractive coin; on the contrary, it has remarkable eye appeal for its age and history. Particularly beguiling is the rose coloration, subtle but easily picked up under magnification, that surrounds the peripheral lettering and stars. Housed in a green label holder.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25ZT, PCGS# 8551)
