    Description

    1797 BD-2 Heraldic Eagle Ten, AU55
    10x6 Stars, Long Thin Neck on Eagle

    1797 $10 Large Eagle, BD-2, High R.4, AU55 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. The usual double die crack bisects the second 7 in the date. The right crack is heavy below the 7, and continues to the drapery. After a small production of Small Eagle pieces, the Mint changed to the Heraldic Eagle reverse design that was patterned after the Great Seal. All 1797 varieties exhibit 16 obverse stars, here arranged 10 left, 6 right. The eagle has a long, ungainly neck reminiscent of the Small Eagle design.

    This Choice About Uncirculated piece displays pale green and grayish-gold surfaces with traces of lighter rose luster in the peripheral areas. Numerous faint surface marks and tiny planchet flakes are visible on both sides, but they barely affect the overall visual appeal. The motifs are sharply struck, while soft luster remains across both sides.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2010), lot 1710. (NGC ID# 25ZY, Variety PCGS# 45717, Base PCGS# 8559)
