Description:
1803 BD-5 Eagle, AU58
Intriguing Extra Star Variety
1803 $10 Extra Star AU58 NGC. Breen-6845, Taraszka-30, BD-5, High R.4. Dannreuther die state g/b. The reverse has a die crack from the edge to the left side of the eagle's tail, following the right shield border to the wing. A faint clash mark is noted below the third cloud. Light wear on the high points renders the extra star on top of cloud 7 nearly invisible, viewed only at certain angles to a light. No reasonable explanation for the extra star has come to light. John Dannreuther writes: "This is another early gold mystery that defies explanation."
This near-Mint piece has light wear on the high points, but nearly full satin luster with bright green surfaces. Minor adjustment marks are visible at the lower obverse. The attractive surfaces have a few scattered marks. (PCGS# 88565)
