Description:

1803 Small Stars Reverse Ten Dollar, BD-3
Bright, Lustrous MS62+ Example
1803 $10 Small Stars Reverse MS62+ PCGS Secure. Breen-6844, Taraszka-28, BD-3, R.4. Six varieties of 1803 eagles are known, all from a single obverse die. The six reverses include this die, which was previously used for 1801 BD-2, and the reverse of 1803 BD-6, which was also used for all of the 1804 eagles. The 1803 BD-3 die combination is the most plentiful Small Stars Reverse variety, and the BD-5 marriage is the most plentiful Large Stars Reverse variety.
This late die state example has light obverse and heavy reverse clash marks. The obverse clash marks are most visible in front of Liberty's neck, while those on the reverse are especially prominent in the center. The reverse has a short die crack joining the tops of I and T in UNITED, continuing to the border over the left side of the E. Dannreuther describes a second crack from the ribbon just inside the right wing up to star 6, although that feature appears to be a clash mark instead of a crack.
This lustrous example has splendid reddish-yellow surfaces. A few light adjustment marks at the top of the cap and at the date are the cause of design weakness on the reverse, especially at the left claw and arrowheads. Minor blemishes and scratches are evident. Most notable among the latter are one in front of the face, and another within the reverse stars. This wonderful Mint State piece will undoubtedly find a home with an advanced gold specialist. Population for the Small Stars Reverse: 1 in 62+, 21 finer (5/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2628, PCGS# 8565)
