Description:
Sharp 1803 '14 Star Reverse' Eagle, MS62
1803 $10 Extra Star MS62 NGC. Large Reverse Stars, Star on Cloud, Breen-6845, Taraszka-30, BD-5, R.4. The six varieties of 1803 eagle all share a common obverse die, which was mated with six different reverse dies to produce four Small Reverse Stars and two Large Reverse Stars die combinations.
This interesting BD-5 variety has a most unusual feature: On the cloud on the extreme right, below the letter F, a small star was impressed in the die, lying entirely within the borders of the cloud itself. A leaf point is beneath the left corner of the I in AMERICA (on the other Large Reverse Stars die, the leaf point is between RI), and the A's in the legend are complete, save the last (on the other, the punch broke and the left inner feet on the right stand of the A's are missing). We can think of no other variety in any series where this happened in exactly this manner. The only similar occurrence is on the 1799 B-3 dollar, which 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.
This sharply struck example boasts essentially full definition, except on a few breast feathers and the stars above the eagle's head. Some adjustment marks of Mint origin are near the arrow shafts and a couple of the clouds, distant from the focal points of the coin. The fields have semiprooflike luster, and the apricot-gold color is attractive. A couple of tiny dark spots are in the eagle's shield, and the obverse has the expected number of minor marks. An important offering for both the specialist and the early gold type set collector. 14 Star Reverse NGC Census: 13 in 62, 7 finer (3/08). (PCGS# 88565)
