Important 1798/7 9x4 Stars AU 55 Eagle

1798/7 9x4 Stars AU 55 PCGS. One of the premier rarities in the series of Heraldic Eagle tens, as might be expected from its mintage of just 900 coins. Breen estimates that perhaps only 18-20 pieces survive, although we expect the actual count of those extant to be as high as 25-30 examples. Of that tiny number of survivors, three are known to be mutilated, 6 are thought to be in mint state (most impounded in museums or tucked away in major, old-time collections), and the remainder are in the VF to AU grade range.
This is a well balanced and struck example that displays rich coppery-rose and gunmetal-blue highlights sprinkled over both sides. The luster is semi-reflective and virtually uninterrupted by wear or friction. An obverse die crack from the edge at 12 o'clock extends downward through the cap and into Liberty's hair. On the reverse, a fairly deep planchet flake at the base of the stem is accompanied by a series of short pinscratches. Population: 3 in 55, 1 finer (1/98). (NGC ID# 25ZZ, PCGS# 8560)
