Very Scarce 1803 Ten Dollar, B. 1-E, R.4.1803 $10 Extra Star AU50 PCGS. B. 1-E, R.4. Even though this variety was known to Breen at the time he published his monograph on early eagles, it wasn't until the 1966 ANA Convention that Harry W. Bass, Jr. discovered a small star punched over cloud 7 just above the eagle's right (facing) wing. Although indistinct on many examples of this variety, the present coin reveals this extra star to the naked eye. A loupe is, however, recommended. As an issue, the 1803 is rarer than the 1799 and 1801. Rich copper-gold overtones present a pleasing, original appearance. As a future identifier, a thin scratch is noted from Liberty's cap through star 6 to the border. A shorter one is parallel through star 7. Well struck in most areas, this coin should see spirited bidding from advanced gold collectors. (PCGS# 88565)
