    Pretty 1799 Irregular Date, Small Stars Eagle AU50

    1799 $10 Irregular Date, Small Stars Obverse AU50 PCGS. Breen-6840, B. 4-E, Taraszka-19, R.3. The 17 in the date tilt markedly to the right, and the last 9 nearly touches the bottom of the bust. A star point nearly touches the Y in LIBERTY. On the reverse the top of the first four clouds are incomplete. This example shows the usual die crumbling on the obverse rim at stars 1 and 2, but none of the other die breaks mentioned in the Taraszka standard reference are much in evidence, on either the obverse or the reverse. This piece offers pretty greenish-gold surfaces that are still attractive and lustrous despite the 10 points of wear. There is a bit of light scuffiness in the fields on each side, and a dab of darker toning through the second 9 in the date. Certified in a green-label holder.
