1795 Eagle, AU Sharpness
1795 $10 13 Leaves -- Reverse Repaired, Cleaned -- NGC Details.
AU. BD-1, High R.3. The BD-1 variety is identified by the
position of star 11 close to the Y in LIBERTY, and the leaf nearly
touching U in UNITED. The year 1795 saw the first coinage of gold
denominations at the Philadelphia Mint, and a small mintage of
5,583 Capped Bust Right eagles was accomplished. The coins are
prized by date and type collectors in all grades and conditions.
Numismatists recognize five different die varieties for this issue,
all of them High R.3 or scarcer. This coin represents the BD-1
variety, which is seen more often than any other variety of the
year, but is still quite scarce in absolute terms.
First-Year Type Coin, BD-1
This coin shows AU sharpness on the design elements but extensive repair is evident on the lower reverse surfaces, below the branch. The surfaces are a vivid greenish-gold color and retain much original mint luster. A still-attractive example of this important first-year issue.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25ZU, PCGS# 8551)
