    Seldom Seen 1796 Ten Dollar, BD-1

    1796 $10 PCGS Genuine. Breen-6832, Taraszka-6, BD-1, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b. The PCGS number ending in .98 suggests Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been repaired and cleaned. No damage is readily evident, but the left and right obverse field has been smoothed, and the reverse is a bit bright from cleaning. A minor pinscratch is noted above the date, and the central obverse has a few light adjustment marks. About half of the breast feathers are present, and luster is apparent throughout the hair and wings. As is the case for the 1796 half eagle, only one die variety is known, and survivors in any grade are subject to strong demand from early gold specialists.
