Description:
Exquisite 1803 Eagle, Star on Cloud Variety, MS62 NGC
1803 $10 Extra Star MS62 NGC. Large Reverse Stars, Breen-6845, B. 1-E, Taraszka-30, R.4. An interesting 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.
This is a sharply struck example with 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, these are distant from the focal points of the coin. The fields have semi-prooflike 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 minor marks. An important offering for both the specialist and the early gold type set collector.(#88565) (PCGS# 88565)
