    Description

    Uncirculated 1799 Heraldic Eagle Ten
    Large Stars Obverse, BD-10

    1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse MS61 NGC. Breen-6841, Taraszka-22, BD-10, R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. BD-10 is attributed by the points of the eagle's beak, both of which penetrate the lowest star. This attractive early eagle has consistent canary-gold color and is only minimally abraded for the MS61 grade. Well struck except for the two highest reverse stars, as these are opposite the high point of the bust truncation. Luster dominates the borders and devices. Early eagles from 1799 to 1801 are collectible, but always in demand due to their scarcity, historic era, and large diameter.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
