    Choice AU 1800 Eagle, BD-1
    Lustrous, Lovely Two-Toned Surfaces

    1800 $10 AU55 NGC. Breen-6842, Taraszka-23, BD-1, High R.3.
    Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c. There is only a single die marriage known for the year. The obverse die dated 1800 is new, of course, while the reverse is a carryover from 1799, used on the BD-10 of that year and reused again for the 1801 BD-1. The 1 in the date and star 8 nearly touch the lowest curl and Y in LIBERTY, respectively. On the reverse, a leaf touches the I in AMERICA at the lower right serif, and a berry appears under the right foot of the last A. A die crack runs through LIBERTY, more heavily through the last four letters, and on the reverse a wispy die crack runs through the lower-right devices.
    This Choice AU piece has lots of brilliant luster over attractive orange-gold surfaces with lighter yellow at the margins. The fields on each side are moderately abraded, but none of them are deep or require singular mention, and there are no adjustment marks. Census: 27 in 55, 70 finer (11/11).
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2010), lot 2278, which brought $19,550; ANA Signature (Heritage, 3/2011), which realized $20,709.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
