Description

Uncirculated 1801 Ten Dollar
BD-2, Mysterious 'Spines' Variety

1801 $10 MS61 NGC. BD-2, R.2. A sharply struck apricot-gold Heraldic Eagle type coin. Consequential marks are absent, though close inspection of the open fields beneath a loupe shows trivial hairlines. The usual die state with nine curious vertical "spines" (bold, straight, vertical, parallel die lines) within Liberty's cap. Upon first glance, these appear to be clash marks from the shield, but they do not match the shield, or part of any U.S. coin of the era, and their true origin remains unknown. Occasional examples of BD-2 lack the "spines," such as lot 4967 in our January 2012 FUN Signature, so the obverse die received the mysterious impressions after it was first placed in service.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)
