Description:
Noteworthy Borderline Uncirculated 1796 Eagle
1796 $10 AU58 NGC. Breen-6832, B. 1-A, Taraszka-6, R.4. Only a single die pairing was used this year. Although its mintage of 4,146 pieces is similar to that of the 1795, the 1796 eagle is a considerably more difficult coin to locate in all grades. Presumably, fewer examples were retained as luxury souvenirs at the time of issue. This issue has the added desirability among modern collectors as being the only Early Eagle with 8 stars left and 8 right. A slender vertical die crack (as made) bisects the portrait, and faint clash marks (as produced) are encountered below the bust and between the upper leaves of the olive wreath. Although the eagle's neck offers faint rub, this well struck Borderline Uncirculated representative has a bold strike and is without adjustment marks. The surfaces are surprisingly free from relevant abrasions. A short pinscratch on the eagle's right (facing) leg is mentioned primarily as a pedigree marker.
From the Fred Miller Collection.(#8554) (NGC ID# 25ZW, PCGS# 8554)
