    XF Details 1799 Small Stars Eagle, Rare Taraszka-14 Variety

    1799 $10 Small Stars Obverse--Tooled, Cleaned--ANACS. XF Details, Net VF20. Breen-6839, B. 2-A, Taraszka-14, R.6. Although the 1799 is an available date within this rare gold type, most survivors encountered are Taraszka-19 or Taraszka-22. Taraszka-14, which has stars distant from the bust and the Y in LIBERTY, is decidedly rare. This is a well defined coin with light overall wear and shiny, green-gold surfaces. Both sides are glossy in texture with smoothed over fields and scattered hairlines. Additional tooling marks are the result of a misguided attempt to remove die chips and die cracks. A relatively affordable example for the circulated type collector.(#98562) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2625, PCGS# 98562)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
