    1797 BD-2 Eagle, AU58+
    Heraldic Eagle Type

    1797 $10 Large Eagle AU58+ NGC. BD-2, High R.4. This piece marks the beginning of the Heraldic Eagle type, part of a transitional year that began with coinage of the earlier Small Eagle reverse design. All 1797 Heraldic Eagle tens are from a single obverse die that has a prominent double die crack from the border through the final 7 to the bust. That crack is heavy below the 7 on this example, branches into two parallel cracks through the 7, and continues as a delicate single crack to the drapery.

    A lovely and lustrous yellow-gold specimen, this example has reflective fields. The obverse exhibits the usual shallow strike characteristic of the die. The reverse has a bold strike. Faint hairlines are hidden beneath deeper honey-gold toning.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ZY, PCGS# 8559)
