    1801 Ten Dollar, AU58
    BD-2, Near-Mint State Example

    1801 $10 AU58 NGC. BD-2, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. Up to 90% or so of the 44,344 eagles dated 1801 are this BD-2 variety, easily identifiable by the large, less-chunky stars with longer, spindly tips (called the Type III stars by Bass), of which star 8 is positioned much closer to Liberty's cap than the scarcer BD-1 variety. Most of the BD-2 variety display nine vertical spines in the cap, an anomaly acquired on the obverse die early in its life judging by the number of examples that display the peculiarity.

    This example is lightly abraded with a touch of wear. Nominal strike weakness exists at stars 1 and 2 on the obverse, as well as on two of the field stars on the reverse. No evidence of die clash is seen on either side of the coin. Pleasing, green-gold color shows amber accents near the rims. Remaining mint luster surrounds the obverse stars and is plentiful on the reverse, making this a nice, near-Mint selection for early gold eagle collectors and for gold type enthusiasts alike.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)

    Weight: 17.50 grams
