    Desirable 1797 Heraldic Eagle
    Ten Dollar, BD-2, AU53

    1797 $10 Large Eagle AU53 PCGS. Breen-6834, Taraszka-8, BD-2, High R.4. A strong loupe locates a hair-thin die crack from the serif of the 7 to the bust, and a radial die crack is at 1 o'clock on the reverse. Curiously, this radial crack is unmentioned in the Bass-Dannreuther reference, although it is evident on the photograph of the Bass-ANA Museum specimen. Four different styles of eagles were used on the 1797 ten dollar: the small eagle, BD-1, the toucan-beaked large eagle, BD-3, the narrow-necked large eagle, BD-2, and the narrow-beak, triangle-necked BD-4.
    This is a partly lustrous example with pleasing surfaces. A few faint adjustment marks are concealed within Liberty's hair. The strike is sharp throughout, with only a hint of wear noted on the cheek, shoulder, and forehead.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ZY, PCGS# 8559)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
