    1800 BD-1 Eagle, Choice AU
    Strong Definition

    1800 $10 BD-1, High R.3, AU55 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/e. A heavy die break through LIBERTY and dentil clash marks above the first T in STATES confirm the late die state and the fact that this 1800 eagle was actually struck in 1801 after the BD-1 eagles of that year were minted using the same reverse. After manufacturing a small quantity of 1801 ten dollar gold coins, the obverse for that year failed. Without another 1801 obverse on hand, officials resorted to this 1800-dated die, which was paired once more with the 1799F reverse. Both dies failed soon after this coin was struck. About 200 to 300 1800 ten dollar gold coins survive (BD-1 is the only variety for the issue). A hint of rub on the cheek and stars is minimal for the Choice AU assessment. Overall, the detail is strong. No trace of luster remains, however, and the surfaces show moderate marks and hairlines. (NGC ID# BFYT, Variety PCGS# 45732, Base PCGS# 8563)
