    1799 Capped Bust Right Eagle, AU50
    Large Stars Obverse, BD-10

    1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse AU50 PCGS. Breen-6841, BD-10, R.3. The large obverse stars and the position of the lowest berry under the right foot of the second A in AMERICA identifies this coin as an example of the BD-10 variety. The 1799 Capped Bust Right eagle claims a substantial mintage of 37,449 pieces, and the BD-10 is the most available of the 10 varieties known for the date, making this issue a popular type coin. John Dannreuther estimates the BD-10 accounted for 12,500-17,500 pieces of the original mintage, with perhaps 300-400 examples extant in all grades.
    The present coin is a lightly circulated example, retaining most original detail and mint luster intact. The surfaces display the usual minor abrasions for an AU50 coin, but no adjustment marks or rim bruises are detected. The surfaces are a light greenish-gold color that adds to the considerable appeal of this piece. Housed in a green label holder.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)
