Description:
AU Details 1796 Ten Dollar, BD-1
Rare Late Die State
1796 $10 -- Harshly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Breen-6832, Taraszka-6, BD-1, R.4. As was the case for the half eagle, only one die pair was struck in 1796, following a fairly large number of 1795 marriages. The Bass-Dannreuther die states for BD-1 must be in error, since they omit two obvious cracks on the present coin but list others that are absent here. The unlisted cracks, one on each side, are from star 2 to the vertical crack near the base of the cap, and diagonally across the reverse through the D in UNITED and the C in AMERICA. This late die state appears to be rare, based on a perusal of past auction appearances that lack these major cracks.
This is a well defined example with uniform yellow-gold toning. The surfaces are somewhat glossy from fine hairlines that coat both sides. But there are no distracting marks, and luster shimmers from protected regions.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25ZW, PCGS# 8554)
