    Impressive 1799 Eagle, BD-7, AU58

    1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse AU58 NGC. Breen-6840, Taraszka-19, BD-7, R.3. A large mintage of 37,449 Capped Bust, Heraldic Eagle ten dollar gold coins was achieved in 1799. Ten die varieties are known for the date, with the present coin representing the BD-7 variety, distinguished by the tilting numerals 17 in the date and the position of star 13 away from the ribbon on the reverse. John Dannreuther estimates a surviving population of 250-350 examples of this variety in all grades.
    The present coin is an exceptional early Bust ten, and one of the most attractive AUs we have seen in some time. This specimen has a feature that is extremely desirable on an AU58 coin--it has significantly more eye appeal than most low-end but technically Uncirculated coins. The striking details are firmly impressed throughout (save for a couple of stars on the obverse), and the color is an even, light yellow-gold with no trace of the coppery-reddish patina so common on these coins. Although there are myriad tiny contact marks and abrasions on each side, they seem not to affect the bright, remaining luster.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 98562)
