    Late State 1799 BD-3 Eagle, AU58

    1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse AU58 PCGS. Breen-6839, Taraszka-15, BD-3, High R.6. This important piece is one of about 20 examples of the elusive BD-3 variety that are known to exist today. The obverse die has Small Stars as do eight of the 10 known die combinations for 1799. The obverse of this late die state piece has four distinct die cracks: from the border to the lower left serif of B and beyond, from the border just right of star 8 toward the cap, from the border through the left side of L onto the cap, and from the top edge of the cap down to the hair. This piece is in the identical die state and grade as a coin that John Dannreuther discussed, from a March 2006 auction, although it is a different coin from that example. The fields of this attractive green-gold example are reflective, with splashes of orange toning. Modest surface marks are expected for the grade.
