    1800 BD-1 Eagle, MS61
    Late Die State, Likely Struck in 1801

    1800 $10 BD-1, High R.3, MS61 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/e. This late die state of the 1800 eagle was struck after the first variety of the 1801 eagle. The same reverse die was employed for both issues, but 1800-dated coins in this die state show more advanced deterioration of the reverse than the 1801 coins. In Die State c/e, the obverse cracks along the top of LIBERTY are heavy. On the reverse, the clash marks above STATES are weak from lapping. A die crack runs from the R in AMERICA to the eagle's tailfeathers and another connects the tops of the AME. Two other cracks appear within UNITED, and a radial crack extends upward from the rim just right of the tailfeathers.

    The 1800 eagle as a date is scarce in Uncirculated condition, despite being plentiful in lower grades. This is a rare CAC-approved example. Natural honey-gold and peach hues adorn the lustrous surfaces, and the strike is sharp throughout the border stars and the central devices. Eye appeal is outstanding. Census (all varieties included): 13 in 61 (1 in 61+, 1 in 61 Prooflike), 26 finer. CAC: 4 in 61, 5 finer (11/18).
