    1796 Capped Bust Right Ten, AU Details
    Only Dies for the Date, BD-1

    1796 $10 BD-1, R.4 -- Obverse Repaired -- NGC Details. AU. Ex: Hilt Collection. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b. Only 4,146 Capped Bust Right eagles were struck in 1796, and some of those coins may have born a 1795 date. To further complicate matters, die evidence indicates that some 1796-dated specimens were actually struck in 1797, after the 1797-dated coins were struck. The exact number of 1796 eagles originally produced will never be known for certain, but the surviving population numbers no more than 125-175 specimens in all grades, with a single die variety known for the date.

    The present coin is an attractive specimen that exhibits well-detailed design elements with just a trace of actual wear. The bright greenish-gold surfaces show only minor abrasions, but evidence of some slight repair shows in the right obverse field, near Liberty's nose.
    From The Liberty USA Collection.
