    Attractive MS61 1801 Eagle, BD-2

    1801 $10 MS61 PCGS. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, R.2. Star 8 is near the cap--nearer than on the much-rarer BD-1--while star 1 is further away from the curl and star 13 is closer to the bust than on BD-1. Numerous nearly vertical spines on the cap appear to be an added decoration to the die of some sort. On the reverse the eagle's upper beak nearly touches a star just below. Only two die marriages are known for the 1801 eagles, although the recorded mintage was large, at 44,344 coins. Not all of them were necessarily dated 1801, however, as the small number of dies and other evidence suggests that some of that number may have been dated 1800 or even 1799. The reverse die was used for both the BD-1 and BD-2 of 1801, then reused for the BD-3 of 1803.
    This example offers attractive greenish-gold coloration with a small patch of hazel at the bust tip. Minor horizontal planchet adjustment marks appear on the lower shield. This would make a wonderful addition to a high grade type set.
