    Choice AU 1801 Ten Dollar
    Much Better BD-1 Variety

    1801 $10 AU55 PCGS. BD-1, R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a-b/d. A die crack exists between the 01 in the date, but the arc-shaped crack from the bust to star 13 is absent. This intermediate die state was unknown to Bass and is unlisted in the Dannreuther reference. There are two die varieties of 1801 tens, but more than 90% of survivors are BD-2. BD-1 is rare but can often be acquired for little premium over the "common" BD-2. The present butter-gold Choice AU representative is mildly bright, and is richly defined except for softness on the two uppermost reverse stars. Minimally abraded aside from wispy field marks near obverse star 2.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
