Description:

1799 Capped Bust Right Eagle, VF30
Very Scarce BD-2 Variety
1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse VF30 PCGS. Breen-6839, Taraszka-14, BD-2, High R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. A substantial mintage of 37,449 Capped Bust Right eagles was achieved in 1799, with 10 different die varieties known for the date. The present coin represents the very scarce BD-2 variety, with small obverse stars, star 9 away from Y, and star 13 away from the bust. John Dannreuther estimates the BD-2 variety accounted for 1,500-2,000 pieces of the original mintage, with just 35-45 examples surviving today in all grades.
The present coin is an evenly worn VF30 specimen that retains much original detail. The problem-free surfaces display the usual number of minor abrasions for the grade and some traces of mint luster.
From The Eagle Harbor Collection, Part Three.
