1795 13 Leaves Small Eagle Ten Dollar AU581795 $10 13 Leaves AU58 NGC. B. 1-A, Taraszka-1, R.3. The most frequently seen die pairing of this initial year Eagle, being readily identified by a minute extension at the top left of the upper left of the serif of the Y in LIBERTY and on the reverse by the U in UNITED resting against a leaf tip. This sought-after representative displays characteristic yellow-gold color and is generally well defined. A few small marks are noted in the lower right obverse field and a faint lamination connects star 4 with the portrait.
The U.S. Mint began Eagle production in 1795 with a delivery of 5,583 coins. The design is attributed to Robert Scot, and it continued through 1797, when the Small Eagle reverse yielded to the Heraldic Eagle motif. Survivors of this issue are the most common Eagles of the Capped Bust Right, Small Eagle type. It seems likely that many representatives of this delivery were preserved as the first of their kind, but there are still not enough coins to satisfy the unflagging demand from type collectors.
