    Lovely Mint State 1799 Taraszka-19 Capped Bust Right, Heraldic Eagle Ten

    1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse MS60 NGC. B. 4-E, Taraszka-19, R.3. The 1799 (37,449 pieces produced, some in 1800) is among the more plentiful early Eagles in today's hobby. As such, it is the impressive size and historical significance of these coins, rather than their absolute rarity, that explains the continued collector demand for Ten Dollar gold pieces of this date. (Of course, type considerations also play a not insignificant part.) This Mint State survivor is awash in green-gold color that brightens to yellow-gold hues at direct angles. The strike is impressively sharp with crisp definition over all devices and around the peripheries. True, there are some scattered obverse abrasions, but the grade seems to be explained more by a couple of moderate scrapes over the eagle. The finish is noticeably semi-prooflike--another feature that enhances the already impressive appearance of this BU quality survivor.
    From the collection of Lance Burney. (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)
