Description:
Very Scarce MS62 1797 Small Eagle Ten Dollar, Intermediate Die State
1797 $10 Small Eagle MS62 NGC. B. 1-A, Taraszka-7, R.5. Only 3,615 pieces are believed to have been struck of this issue, from March 25 through May 2, 1797. Breen only knew of one coin that showed an unbroken obverse. Apparently, this awkwardly arranged die, with 12 stars left and 4 right, broke shortly after being put into commission. This is an earlier striking as the crack is apparent in the lower right field but is not present yet on Liberty's neck and jaw. Of the 25-30 pieces believed known, perhaps 5-6 are extant today in Uncirculated. This piece is tied for finest certified with two other coins, one other at NGC and one at PCGS. The surfaces show bright green-gold coloration and satiny mint luster. There are, however, striking and surface problems that account for the grade. While strong on the reverse, the strike is irregular on the obverse with incomplete details on Liberty's mouth and over the ear. Numerous small abrasions are scattered over each side with several larger marks on the face of Liberty. Nevertheless, this is a scarce opportunity for the specialist to acquire this issue, the rarest of the three years the Small Eagle designed was produced.(#8555) (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25ZX, PCGS# 8555)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
