Description

Uncirculated 1801 Ten Dollar, BD-2

1801 $10 MS61 NGC. BD-2, R.2. A lovely honey-gold example of this scarce and widely pursued Capped Bust type coin. There are no consequential marks, and the devices and margins shimmer with luster. BD-2 is the variety with "nine vertical spines in cap," as Harry W. Bass, Jr. described them. Upon first glance, the numismatist supposes they represent clash marks from the eagle's shield, but they cannot be, as the spines are evenly spaced and too close together for that possibility. Some examples of BD-2 lack the spines, for example, lot 4967 in our January FUN Signature. Perhaps the obverse die was damaged during production, similar to the "Spiked Chin" 1804 half cent.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)
