    1797 Heraldic Eagle Ten Dollar, AU50
    Better Date, BD-4, Very Scarce Variety

    1797 $10 Large Eagle, BD-4, High R.4, AU50 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/b. Four different die varieties exist of the 1797 ten, and each has a different appearance on the eagle's head and neck. For example, the BD-4 eagle has a short tongue, the BD-2 eagle has a long tongue, and BD-1 and BD-3 are without a tongue. All varieties are roughly similar in rarity, although BD-1 is far more costly as it has the obsolete Small Eagle reverse. The present Heraldic Eagle reddish-gold example is well-defined and has light to moderate wear on Liberty's cap and hair. There are no noticeable marks.
