Description:
AU Details 1803 'Extra Star' Eagle, BD-5
1803 $10 Large Reverse Stars, Extra Star--Altered Surface--NGC. AU Details. Breen-6845, Taraszka-30, BD-5, High R.4. This is the famous "Star on Cloud" variety, of which Bass-Dannreuther wrote:

"Bass owned two examples of this scarce and popular variety. The curious 14th star seems to have been discovered by Harry Bass. Although the die combination was previously known, no one had noticed the tiny star atop the cloud below (O)F. Bass saw this on an example he purchased in 1966."


Bass-Dannreuther estimate that from 90 to 110 examples exist today of this variety in all grades. The present piece still appears to bear much original luster, although the fields on both sides, the obverse more prominently, have been expertly smoothed. A deep gash runs through ED, the wing, and ST on the reverse. Despite the caveats, much appeal is present on this large and important early type coin.
