    XF40 1801 Eagle, BD-2

    1801 $10 XF40 PCGS. Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b, with "spikes" (actually lines from the reverse shield) through Liberty's cap. This variety's availability (it does not qualify as "scarce" in an absolute sense) has long been a source of attraction to type collectors, though the corresponding increased demand has elevated the BD-2 1801 eagle close to its less-available counterparts. On this XF coin, faint glimmers of reflective luster are present at the yellow-orange margins. Shallow but significant abrasions are present through the fields and on the devices, though the lower left obverse's parallel lines are die adjustment marks and not flaws picked up in circulation. Housed in a green label holder.
    From The South Texas Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 2627, PCGS# 8564)

    Weight: 17.50 grams
