    Important 1801 BD-1 Eagle, AU53 Details

    1801 $10 --Cleaned--ANACS. AU53 Details. Breen-6843, Taraszka-24, BD-1, R.5. The rarer of two known varieties for 1801, BD-1 is immediately identified by the relationship of star 1 to the low curl. This obverse has two points of star 1 close to the curl, while BD-2 has a single point of star 1 distant from the curl. Only about 40 to 50 examples of BD-1 are known in all grades.
    The obverse die is perfect, without the often seen die cracks. The reverse has light cracks, and clash marks above STAT. The reverse die was first used in 1799, then for early die states of the 1800 eagles, next for all examples of this 1801 eagle variety, and finally for the late die state examples of 1800.
    The surfaces display bright green-gold with moderate abrasions. The overall appearance is brighter than usual, due to light cleaning, but some luster remains evident on each side.
