Elusive 1803 Extra Star Eagle, BD-5, AU58

1803 $10 Extra Star AU58 NGC. Breen-6845, Taraszka-30, BD-5, High R.4. A faint outline of the small "extra" star is seen in the last cloud on the reverse. Only one obverse die was used to strike all 1803 eagles, but six reverse dies are known: four with small reverse stars, and two (BD-5 and BD-6) with large reverse stars. This piece is Bass-Dannreuther die state g/b, as evidenced by the die crack on the reverse from the rim to the center of the right wing, a die line (possibly clashing) in the right wing, and a clash mark below the third cloud.
Charming yellow-gold patina coats the lightly abraded surfaces of this near-Mint State example. Liberty's hair is a touch soft, but the reverse is sharply defined. Flashy luster adds to the aesthetic appeal. John Dannreuther (2006) estimates that 90 to 110 examples of this variety are known, but our experience suggests that the number of survivors is even lower. (PCGS# 88565)
