    Choice AU 1797 Large Eagle Ten Dollar

    1797 $10 Large Eagle AU55 PCGS. B. 2-C, Taraszka-12, R.4. First year of the heraldic eagle type and a median rarity in the series. This variety is characterized by the "cross" star arrangement on the reverse and the alignment of the second and eighth stars toward the eagle's eye. The surfaces are lightly abraded with numerous small marks scattered about, but the only mentionable ones are a couple of shallow scratches on the upper right portion of the shield. Good portions of mint luster remain on each side of the green-gold surfaces that have taken on a ruddy complexion over the highpoints where just a bit of rub is evident. Well struck throughout. Population: 34 in 55, 47 finer (10/02). (NGC ID# 25ZY, PCGS# 8559)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
