Description

1795 13 Leaves Ten Dollar, BD-5, AU Details
One of Only a Few Dozen Survivors

1795 $10 13 Leaves--Improperly Cleaned--NCS. AU Details. Breen-6830, Taraszka-5, BD-5, R.5. On the obverse, the bust overlaps the 5 in the date, and on the reverse a leaf tip is distant from the U in UNITED and points to its left side. There are five 1795 ten dollar varieties, and BD-5 is rarest of the four 13 Leaves varieties. Dannreuther (2006) estimates the original mintage at just 500 to 1,000 coins, and he believes that only 35 to 45 examples still exist.
The surfaces of this specimen are an even bright yellow-gold color, which is typical of a cleaned example. Several die adjustment marks are noted between 2 and 3 o'clock on the obverse, and there are a few lighter ones behind Liberty's ear. A couple of small digs are seen above the R in AMERICA on the reverse. The peripheral details are soft in some areas, but the central design elements are bold.
