    Richly Lustrous 1801 Eagle, BD-2, AU53

    1801 $10 AU53 PCGS. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, R.2. Stars 8 and 13 are close to the cap and bust, respectively, while star 1 is more distant from the curls than on the BD-1. Bass-Dannreuther note, however, that the obverse star punch was also replaced between the mintage of the BD-1 and this BD-2 variety. The authors describe the stars as "chunky spines" on the BD-1 and "more spindly spines that are also slightly larger" on the BD-2.
    Ample rich luster remains on the surfaces of this elegant example, which shows no singular contact to the naked eye and even under a loupe reveals only minor ticks. No adjustment marks appear on either side. This available variety would make a wonderful type coin without a lot of extra competition from specialist in rare varieties, and it is a beautiful coin in its own right, as well.
