    1795 13 Leaves Ten Dollar, VF35
    BD-1, First Die Variety of Denomination

    1795 $10 13 Leaves, BD-1, High R.3, VF35 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. BD-1 is the first ten dollar die variety coined by the U.S. Mint. It is readily attributed by the defective left serif of the Y in LIBERTY. The pick-up point on the reverse is the U in UNITED, which is touched by a frond from the palm branch. The Small Eagle type is significantly scarcer than its Heraldic Eagle successor, and is absent from most advanced gold collections. The present coin shows substantial wing plumage along with traces of peach-gold luster. The high points and open fields are apricot-gold. Despite its service in early American commerce, marks are unimportant except for a reverse rim nick at 3 o'clock and a narrow impression on the eagle's neck and near the top of the right (facing) wing.
    Ex: Orlando FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2003), lot 8724.
