    1801 BD-2 Ten Dollar, AU Sharpness
    Collectible Early Gold Type

    1801 $10 BD-2, R.2 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine Secure. AU Details. This sharply defined honey-gold example has a hairlined obverse and a coarse mattelike reverse. The field above the eagle's head is smoothed. BD-2 is the specialist-familiar variety with nine equally spaced vertical die lines within Liberty's cap. The explanation for the die lines is unclear; they are not clash marks from the shield. Instead, it appears that a file or similar corrugated metallic object was inadvertently pressed into the obverse die, akin to the 1804 Spiked Chin half cent.
