    1797 Capped Bust Right Eagle, XF45
    Large Eagle, BD-2 Variety

    1797 $10 Large Eagle, BD-2, High R.4, XF45 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. The 1797 Capped Bust Right eagle with the Heraldic Eagle reverse claims a mintage of 10,940 pieces, with three die varieties known for the date and type. All three varieties employ the same obverse die, so they are distinguished by the reverse. This coin represents the BD-2 variety, with a long, thin neck on the eagle, The BD-2 is a scarce variety with a surviving population of 80-100 examples in all grades. It probably accounted for 3,500-5,000 pieces of the reported mintage.

    The coin offered here is a Choice XF specimen with pleasing orange-gold surfaces that show the expected number of minor abrasions for the grade and retain traces of original mint luster in sheltered areas. Only light wear shows on the well-detailed design elements and the overall presentation is quite attractive. Housed in a green label holder. (NGC ID# 25ZY, Variety PCGS# 45717, Base PCGS# 8559)
