Description

Boldly Struck 1797 Large Eagle
Ten Dollar, BD-2, AU55

1797 $10 Large Eagle AU55 NGC. Breen-6834, Taraszka-8, BD-2, High R.4. This obverse is the only one used with the Large Eagle reverse; it has 10 stars left and six right. On the reverse, a star touches cloud 4, whereas in BD-3 and BD-4 the star is distant from cloud 4. Also, the eagle has a long thin neck.
Yellow-gold and apricot colors compete for territory on this Choice AU specimen that displays traces of luster in the recessed areas. Uniformly sharp definition is apparent on the design features. Fine hairlines show up under high magnification on the obverse, where a couple of hair-thin marks are also visible. The last 7 in the date shows a marked die crack running upward from the rim through the top serif where it thins out before extending onto the drapery.
Ex: The Grant Pierce & Sons Collection (Stack's, 5/1965), lot 1434 (Stack's envelope included).
From The Mulkin Collection.
