    Historic Near-Mint State 1799 Large Stars Eagle, Taraszka-22

    1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse AU58 NGC. Breen-6841, B. 5-G, Taraszka-22, R.3. The stars are large on this variety, produced after a new star punch, different from the Small Stars punch, was created. The date is widely spaced, and the remainder of a previous 9 curves above the top of the final 9. On the reverse the E in STATES is centered over the space between two clouds, and both the eagle's upper and lower beak chomp down on the same star point. Star 3 on the reverse is weak (appearing to be differently shaped), as usual for this variant, and the last berry is centered under the right foot of the A.
    This beautiful example is still quite lustrous over the antique-gold surfaces and virtually mark-free, save for a couple of ticks in the obverse field near stars 12 and 13. A tiny abrasion is noted on the last set of shield stripes, but these trivia do nothing to detract from the enormous eye appeal of this historic near-Mint State coin.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)
