Description

Lustrous and Sharply Defined MS62 14-Star 1803 Ten Dollar

1803 $10 Extra Star MS62 NGC. B. 1-E. A rare variety that has a most unusual feature. On the cloud on the extreme right, below the letter F, there is a small star that was impressed in the die, lying entirely within the borders of the cloud itself. We cannot think of another variety in any series where this happened in exactly this manner. The only similar occurrence was on the 1799 B-3 dollar that has two stars partially buried beneath the clouds. As such it is quite rare and remained unknown until Harry Bass discovered this feature in 1966.
The strike on the coin is exceptionally bold with only faint softness showing on the breast feathers of the eagle immediately above the shield. There is a noticeable mark in the obverse field near Liberty's nose, and a few very faint adjustment marks on the reverse, with one scratch running from the arrows into the shield. There are only a few scattered light marks elsewhere on the piece. Overall one notices an overall orange-gold color. A very attractive early ten and surely one of the finest examples of this rare variety known. Although labeled as Ex: Ashland City, this piece is actually Ex: 1999 FUN.(#88565) (NGC ID# 262A, PCGS# 88565)

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
