Description

1799 Small Stars Ten, MS62
Rare BD-3 Variety

1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse MS62 NGC. Breen-6839, Taraszka-15, BD-3, High R.6. A Mint State example of the rare BD-3 variety. This piece is the later die state with cracks through the B and L of LIBERTY. Harry Bass only found one example of this variety in all his years of collecting.
This piece is possibly the finest known example, comparing quite favorably to the Bass coin that is on loan to the ANA museum. Prooflike greenish-gold surfaces have traces of orange patina near the borders. Both sides are moderately abraded, consistent with the grade. The definition is strong on each side with fine detailing on Liberty's hair curls and the breast feathers of the eagle.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 98562)
