    1799 Capped Bust Right Eagle, XF45
    Small Obverse Stars, BD-7

    1799 $10 Small Obverse Stars, BD-7, R.3, XF45 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. A respectable mintage of 37,449 Capped Bust Right eagles was accomplished in 1799, with 10 die varieties known for the date. This coin represents the BD-7 variety, with Small Obverse Stars, the 17 in the date tilted right, and the star away from the beak on the reverse. BD-7 is an available variety, with a surviving population of 250-350 examples in all grades. The obverse die was used again to strike the BD-8 variety of this date and the reverse was used previously to produce the BD-6 variety. Die evidence suggests there was a remarriage of the BD-7 dies, with the BD-8 coins struck in between the two pairings.

    The present coin is an impressive Choice XF specimen, from a fairly early state of the dies. Just a trace of crumbling is evident on the dentils between stars 1 and 2 on the obverse and the reverse shows evidence of lapping from its previous use on BD-6. The well-detailed design elements exhibit some light wear and the pleasing orange-gold surfaces are lightly abraded. An inconspicuous (almost invisible) rim ding shows at 4 o'clock on the obverse. A few traces of original mint luster remain intact (NGC ID# 2625, Variety PCGS# 45730, Base PCGS# 98562)
