    Description

    Elusive Select Mint State 1799 Ten Dollar

    1799 $10 Large Stars Obverse MS63 NGC. B. 5-G, Taraszka-22, R.3. The 1799 is the most easily obtainable Capped Bust Right Eagle, although the higher mintage 1801 does rank a close second. Of course, with a mintage of only 37,440 pieces, the former issue is anything but common when viewed in the wider context of U.S. coinage. This Mint State representative is well struck throughout with fully defined borders. The luster is frosty in texture and sufficiently vibrant for the grade, the fields are a little scuffy from coin-to-coin contact. Richly colored in deep yellow-gold shades. (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 8562)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
