Description

Important 1798/7 Ten-Dollar, 9x4 Stars, MS 62

1798/7 9x4 Stars MS 62 NGC. A very rare early ten that is seldom offered by anyone in any grade. Breen estimates that perhaps only 18-20 pieces are known out of the original mintage of 900 coins. Of that tiny number of survivors three are known to be mutilated, 6 are in mint state, and the remainder are in the VF to AU grade range. The obverse and reverse of this piece present a study in contrasts. The obverse is sharply struck throughout with subdued, satin-like luster. The reverse, on the other hand, is certainly not subdued but rather quite bright. The eagle's wings are well brought up but definition over the shield is lacking, as usual. Of great importance to the advanced collector. Population: 2 in 62, none are finer (6/96). (NGC ID# 4UPT, PCGS# 8560)
