    Very Rare Breen 3-B 1799 Eagle, MS60 Details

    1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse--Cleaned--ANACS. MS60 Details. B. 3-B, Breen-6838, Taraszka-18, R.6. The 1799 is an available date by the rarified standards of Heraldic Eagle ten dollar pieces. However, this is the first known appearance of a 1799 Breen 3-B in a Heritage auction. While relatively few collectors currently aspire to collect early eagles by die variety, this could change in the near future once the long-awaited John Dannreuther volume is finally published. This subdued orange-gold example is boldly struck, and the only relevant mark is a horizontal pinscratch concealed within the right vertical shield stripes. Faint adjustment marks within the shield are of mint origin. Considering the travails so many early eagles have endured, the problems of the present piece should be readily accepted by the specialist aware of the significance of this Breen 3-B offering.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 98562)

    Weight: 17.50 grams
