    Scarce 1797 Large Eagle Ten, BD-2, MS61

    1797 $10 Large Eagle MS61 NGC. Breen-6834, Taraszka-8, BD-2, High R.4. Partway through the year 1797, the Mint introduced the Heraldic Eagle reverse design on the ten dollar gold piece. There are three known varieties of the issue, with the BD-2 variety having an estimated mintage of 3,500-5,000 pieces. In Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, John Dannreuther estimates a surviving population of 80-100 examples.
    The present coin is a desirable specimen of this scarce date. The surfaces are a pleasing green-gold color, with good luster, especially strong on the reverse. The central details are slightly weak, as usually seen on this issue. There are some light diagonal adjustment marks on the center of the obverse, but only one is individually noticeable. Census: 31 in 61, 17 finer (1/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ZY, PCGS# 8559)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
