    1800 Draped Bust Eagle, BD-1
    Well-Struck Date Representative

    1800 $10 BD-1, High R.3, PCGS Genuine. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/e. This piece was likely one of the final 1800 eagles struck during the second marriage of those dies. The reverse is cracked beyond the state seen in its use for the 1801 BD-1 variety, with a pair of thin breaks detectable amid the arrows shafts and through the bases of the UNI in UNITED. The vertical obverse crack from the rim near the L in LIBERTY extends well into the hair curls below the cap.

    The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of a Mint State specimen that has been cleaned. Both sides are remarkably well brought up, with no mentionable striking weakness present. Consistent yellow-gold patina yields slightly muted luster, though close examination with a lens reveals some faint hairlines in the fields.

    BD-1 is the only eagle variety coined of the 1800 date, although a portion of the mintage was likely struck in 1801, per die states of the reverse, which was also used for the scarcer variety of that year. This is an affordable date representative, and one that remains pleasantly appealing despite its lack of a numeric grade.
