    1800 Eagle, BD-1, Amber-Gold MS61

    1800 $10 BD-1, High R.3, MS61 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c. The BD-1 is the sole die marriage known for the year 1800, for which Bass-Dannreuther give a wide variability in their estimated mintage, from 6,000 to 12,500 coins. The reverse die was a carryover from 1799, where it was used to strike the BD-10. The Large Obverse Stars die, similar to one of the 1799 dies), shows noticeable recutting on star 7. In this die state, noticeable die cracks appear from the rim to the cap and in LIBERTY on the obverse, and on the reverse from the field below R, through the right-side olive branch and claws to the tail feathers. The amber-gold surfaces are Mint State but show scattered contact marks that account for the grade. No planchet adjustment marks appear on either side. For the 1800 date, NGC reports 12 grading events in MS61 (one of them a Prooflike coin) and 26 finer (2/15).
