Important 1795 Gold Eagle, AU58 PCGS

1795 $10 13 Leaves AU58 PCGS. B. 1-A, Taraszka-1, R.3. The most frequently seen variety of the year, which is distinguished by a minute extension at the top left of the upper left of the serif of the Y in LIBERTY. The 1795 Capped Bust Right, Small Eagle Ten was produced with five known die marriages between September 27, 1795 and March 30, 1796. It seems highly likely that representatives of the B. 1-A variety were the first delivered because they were preserved in greater numbers than examples of the other four die marriages. The novelty of these large, impressive gold coins and their resultant popularity among the public at the time also explains why most survivors grade XF-AU; i.e., many examples were retrieved after a short stint in circulation and preserved for posterity. With a bright, yellow-gold sheen and ample remaining definition over the main design elements, this coin would do wonders for a high grade circulated type set. A mixture of adjustment and slide marks is seen over the obverse. One of numerous important gold offerings in this memorable Heritage sale, and a coin that should be personally viewed by the perspective purchaser.
