Choice AU 1803 Ten Dollar
Small Stars Reverse, BD-1

1803 $10 Small Stars Reverse AU55 PCGS. Breen-6844, Taraszka-26, BD-1, High R.5. Eagles dated 1803 are more challenging to collect than those dated 1799 to 1802. Among 1803 tens, the BD-3 and BD-5 are more available than BD-1, but since few collect by die variety, BD-1 can usually be acquired without a premium. The task will require some patience, however, since nice examples appear only about once a year at auction. Like all known 1803 BD-1 tens, the present piece is struck from perfect dies, uncracked and unclashed, although minor die lines and lumps are present, created during production of the dies. Substantial luster brightens design elements, and the strike is consistent. The fields and portrait display minor chatter, but the only individually mentionable mark is a small obverse rim ding at 9 o'clock. A number of BD-1 tens are impaired, such as the damaged example offered in our July FUN Signature, and the appearance of a collectible, problem-free piece should not be overlooked.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2629, PCGS# 8565)
