Description:
Challenging 1797 BD-1 Small Eagle
Ten Dollar, VF Details
1797 $10 Small Eagle--Removed From Jewelry--NCS. VF Details. Breen-6833, Taraszka-7, BD-1, R.5. BD-1 is the only 1797 Small Eagle ten variety. This was a transitional year for ten dollar gold pieces, and both Small Eagle and Large (Heraldic) Eagle issues were struck in 1797. As the final issue of the Small Eagle series and the lone 1797 variety of that type, BD-1 is highly popular with type collectors and specialists alike. Nonetheless, just 55 to 65 examples are believed to exist, and they are seldom seen for sale.
This example was once mounted in jewelry and, as one would expect, has been extensively cleaned. The surfaces are bright yellow with numerous small abrasions and a few planchet flaws on each side. The centers are softly defined, typical of a specimen with Very Fine details. It should be noted, however, that this is only the 11th time Heritage has sold a 1797 Small Eagle ten. It would be difficult to locate another example.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25ZX, PCGS# 8555)
