Description:
1799 Eagle, AU Details
Small Stars Obverse, BD-7
1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Breen-6840, BD-7, R.3. Mint records indicate a mintage of 37,449 eagles was accomplished in 1799, quite generous for the time. The 1799 eagle is known in 10 varieties, including both Large Stars and Small Stars types. The total of 10 different varieties is the most for any early eagle. The present coin represents the BD-7 variety, with small obverse stars, the numerals 17 in the date tilted right, and the star away from the eagle's beak on the reverse. John Dannreuther estimates the BD-7 accounted for 10,000-15,000 pieces of the original mintage, with 250-350 examples surviving today.
The coin offered here is a well-detailed specimen, with just a touch of high-point rub on the devices. The pleasing greenish-gold surfaces are lightly abraded, with no adjustment marks. A slight obverse rim bruise is noted at 2 o'clock. This coin retains significant amounts of mint luster in protected areas, despite the noted cleaning. Extensive die cracks and clashing are evident on both sides, Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/d.
