    Uncirculated 1801 Ten Dollar, BD-2
    Moderately Prooflike Fields

    1801 $10 MS61 NGC. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. BD-2 is identified by a series of curious raised lines within Liberty's cap. The Bass-Dannreuther reference ignores the feature except for a quote from the Harry W. Bass, Jr. notebook: "Nine vertical spines in cap." At first glance, the mysterious lines appear to be clash marks from the cap, but their spacing rules out that possibility. Not all examples of BD-2 show the raised lines; see lot 7005 from our 2011 January FUN Signature. The present yellow-gold Heraldic Eagle ten has moderately prooflike fields and a precise strike. A few minor field abrasions are noted, along with faint mint-made roller marks on the clouds near OF.
    From The Emil Ross Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)

    I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
