Popular 1799 BD-10 Eagle, AU581799 $10 Large Stars Obverse AU58 NGC. Breen-6841, BD-10, R.3. An incredible total of 10 different die varieties were coined of the 1799 eagles, with those varieties ranging from extremely rare to nearly common. In the latter category is this BD-10 die marriage, with possibly as many as 400 examples surviving today. That is good news for the type collector, as this marriage and the 1801 BD-2 are the two common varieties in the entire series, giving those collectors a reasonable chance to acquire a nice one.
The present piece is fully original with smooth and lustrous deep orange-gold surfaces that have pale green accents to enhance the eye appeal. Only a trace of wear and a few minor handling marks are evident on either side.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)
