Description:
Irregular Date, Small Stars Obverse
1799 Ten Dollar, BD-8, MS61
1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse MS61 PCGS. CAC. Irregular Date, Breen-6840, Taraszka-20, BD-8, R.5. The Irregular Date obverse die is identified by the unusual placement of the digits, with the 1 far below the curl and the final 9 nearly touching the drapery. Every other 1799 obverse die has the 1 closer to the curl, or the two digits equally spaced from the curl and drapery.
The Irregular Date obverse was combined with two different reverse dies. The reverse of Taraszka-19, BD-7 has the star right of the eagle's neck high above the scroll, while the reverse of Taraszka-20, BD-8 (the variety offered here) has the same star nearly touching the scroll. The Taraszka-20 or BD-8 is the rarer of the two by a wide margin.
Judging from the appearance of the Bass specimen plated in John Dannreuther's Early U.S. Gold Coins Varieties, this example appears to be almost identical in quality to the Bass coin. It is fully lustrous with traces of green over the light yellow surfaces. The design features are a little flat, as usual (see the Dannreuther plate for comparison), but both sides have excellent surfaces with only a few scattered marks. The reverse has a heavy die crack through MER and a heavy break inside the C. All known examples are in about the same die state.(Registry values: P2) (PCGS# 98562)
