1801 $10 MS61 NGC. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, R.2....
Smooth Uncirculated 1801 Eagle, BD-21801 $10 MS61 NGC. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, R.2. BD-2 is identified by a series of curious raised lines within Liberty's cap. At first glance, these appear to be clash marks from the shield, but they are not, and their true origin remains unknown. The Bass-Dannreuther reference ignores the feature except for a quote from the Harry W. Bass, Jr. notebook: "Nine vertical spines in cap." A lovely apricot-gold Mint State representative of this coveted large denomination early gold type. Both sides are refreshingly void of abrasions, and mint-made adjustment marks are limited to the reverse border at 10 o'clock. Struck from lightly rotated dies.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)
