    About Uncirculated 1795 Capped Bust Right Eagle, 13 Leaves Variety

    1795 $10 13 Leaves AU50 NGC. B. 2-A, Taraszka-2, R.4. The U.S. Mint began Eagle production in 1795 with a delivery of 5,583 coins. The design is attributed to Robert Scot, and it continued through 1797, when the Small Eagle reverse yielded to the Heraldic Eagle motif. Survivors of this issue are the most common Eagles of the Capped Bust Right, Small Eagle type. It seems likely that many representatives of this delivery were preserved as the first of their kind, but there are still not enough coins to satisfy the unflagging demand from type collectors. This is a pleasing, green-gold example whose surfaces exhibit modest brightness in the fields. The impression is expertly centered and bold, the devices are lightly worn across the highest points. There are some wispy abrasions on both sides, none of which are inconsistent with the AU grade level.
    From the Ric Leichtung Collection. (NGC ID# 25ZU, PCGS# 8551)
