Description:
1797 Small Eagle Ten-Dollar AU 55/The Ex: Mickley and Garrett Specimen
1797 Small Eagle AU 55 NGC. B. 1-A, the only variety of the type. The final issue of the Small Eagle type and the rarest of the three dates. As Akers points out only the 1798/7 7x6 Stars had fewer auction appearances. Breen estimates a survival percentage of only 1.5% which would translate to approximately 54 coins in all grades. This is only the second example we have handled in the past five years, the other being an XF 40. Reasonably well struck the upper hair curls show some of the usually seen softness as does the head of the eagle and the feathers in the center of the eagle's breast. The surfaces overall are a bright green-gold with a mild accent of reddish patina around the peripheries. The fields are semi-prooflike, as often seen on early tens, and the only marks of any note are a small cluster in the left obverse field as well as a short diagonal mark in the lower right obverse field. Of great importance to early gold collectors as well as type collectors with its distinctive star arrangement. Population: 5 in 55, 2 finer (1/98).
Ex: Joseph J. Mickley; William Sumner Appleton; obtained by T. Harrison Garrett from W. Elliot Woodward on January 18, 1883; Garrett III (B&R, 10/80), lot 1657. (NGC ID# 25ZX, PCGS# 8555)
