Popular 1797 Heraldic Eagle Ten VF25

1797 $10 Large Eagle VF25 NGC. Breen-6834, Taraszka-12, BD-4, High R.4. The only obverse used with the Large Eagle reverses, ten stars to the left and six right. The eagle has long thick neck and a thick breast area. The arrowheads are past the center of N in UNITED with one nearly to the end. Later dies with a faint crack left of the R in AMERICA. John Dannreuther and Harry Bass, Jr., in their treatise on Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, write that 90 to 110 examples of this variety are known.
The subdued yellow-gold surfaces of this VF25 example possess a slight green cast, and yield hints of luster in the protected areas. The design features exhibit nice detail, and the dentilation is strong, especially on the reverse. The few minute marks that are present are not bothersome. Overall, a pleasing early gold ten dollar piece.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ZY, PCGS# 8559)
