    1801 Capped Bust Right Eagle, BD-2, AU58
    Popular Type Coin

    1801 $10 AU58 NGC. Breen-6843, BD-2, R.2. CAC. The 1801 Capped Bust Right eagle enjoyed a large mintage of 44,344 pieces, with only two die varieties known for the date. Most of the mintage, perhaps as many as 40,000 coins, were of the BD-2 variety. The present coin is a representative of this available die marriage, characterized by the position of star 8 near the cap and star 13 near the bust. John Dannreuther estimates 600-800 examples of the BD-2 variety are extant today, making the issue a popular choice for type collectors.
    The present coin is an appealing specimen, with just a whisper of friction on the high points of the design. Much original mint luster remains, especially around the well detailed devices. The surfaces are bright greenish-gold and display considerable eye appeal, as attested by the CAC sticker. A scattering of minor abrasions, more on the obverse, is consistent with the grade.
