    Important 1796 Gold Eagle

    1796 $10 AU Details, Repaired, NCS. Breen-6832, B. 1-A, Taraszka-6, R.4. Only a single die pairing was used in this second year of Ten Dollar production. Although its mintage of 4,146 pieces is comparable to the 1795, the 1796 Eagle is far more challenging in all grades. This is quite similar to the situation among half eagles, where the mintages were almost identical in both years. For these two denominations, the real mintage is probably substantially higher for 1795 and much lower for 1796. Reflective light yellow-gold surfaces with a stippled appearance. Not blatantly repaired, and only with the slightest waves in the fields.(#8554) (Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFYM, PCGS# 8554)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
