1799 Capped Bust Right Eagle, AU58
Popular Large Stars, BD-10 Variety

1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse AU58 PCGS Secure. BD-10, R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. The 1799 Capped Bust Right eagle claims a mintage of 37,449 pieces, with 10 die varieties known for the date. Eight of these die varieties employ small obverse stars and two exhibit the Large Stars motif. The present coin represents the more available BD-10 variety, one of the two Large Stars varieties, with the leaf touching I in AMERICA on the reverse. The BD-10 accounted for 12,500-17,500 pieces of the original mintage, and perhaps 300-400 examples remain extant in all grades. BD-10 was the only use of the obverse die, but the reverse was used again in 1800 (BD-1, the only variety) and 1801 (BD-1).
This coin is an attractive near-Mint specimen, with just a trace of wear present on the well-detailed design elements. The lightly abraded surfaces retain much of their original mint luster under pleasing antique-gold patina. The BD-10 is a popular issue with early type collectors, as well as series enthusiasts.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2623, PCGS# 8562)

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
