    1800 Eagle, BD-1, AU53
    Bright Yellow-Gold Example

    1800 $10 AU53 PCGS. BD-1, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c. The mintage of 1800 eagles was recorded at 5,999 pieces, but it is more available than that figure would indicate, and die-state evidence shows that some of the 1800-dated eagles were actually struck after the BD-1 variety of 1801. The 1800 BD-1 used a reverse die carried over from the 1799 BD-10 die marriage. The obverse here shows a couple of light die cracks -- one from the rim to the top of the cap, a second heavier crack through LIBE -- and the reverse displays a fine die crack through the olive leaves, berry, claw, and tail feathers at the lower right. The surfaces on this piece are bright yellow-gold primarily, with some lilac accents scattered about on the reverse. A few contact marks are also scattered and not overt, including a couple of straight, thin scrapes in the right obverse field just before Liberty's face, and small ticks on the 1 and 8 in the date.
    From Christopher Bently's Nob Hill Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFYT, PCGS# 8563)
