AU58 1803 Eagle, BD-5, Star on Cloud

1803 $10 Extra Star AU58 NGC. Breen-6845, Taraszka-30, BD-5, High R.4. Although the BD-5 die marriage was known for decades, nobody seemed to notice the extra star embedded in the reverse's rightmost cloud until Harry W. Bass, Jr.'s 1966 discovery.
In 2006, John Dannreuther estimated that approximately 100 1803 BD-5 tens have survived. The other Large Reverse Stars variety, BD-6, is even rarer, with as few as 10 extant pieces. Six different die marriages were used to strike 1803-dated eagles. The first four in the emission sequence are of the Small Reverse Stars type, and the authors opine that they are twice as plentiful--as a group--as their cousins with larger reverse stars.
This is a sharply defined example that shows even yellow-gold color. The surfaces are minimally abraded, and in fact show no singularly mentionable marks on either side. Significant quantities of mint luster can be seen around the devices. (PCGS# 88565)
