    1803 Capped Bust Right Ten Dollar, AU58
    Small Reverse Stars, BD-3 Variety

    1803 $10 Small Reverse Stars, BD-3, R.4, AU58 PCGS. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/d. Only one obverse die was employed for all six varieties of 1803 ten dollar, so the reverse dies (plus the date on the obverse) are sufficient to identify the specific die marriage. The BD-3 is one of the four Small Stars Reverse die pairings, in this case using a leftover die from 1801 that shows the eagle's upper beak nearly touching a star just below its point. The right bottom serif of the E in STATES is over a space between clouds. Noticeable mint luster appears around the margins of this near-Mint example, with deep reddish patina. Some light die cracks and clashes are indicative of the late state of the dies on each side. An area of small abrasions along the jawline and into the right field is among the few mentionable signs of contact.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 4970, realized $29,900. (NGC ID# 2629, Variety PCGS# 45737, Base PCGS# 8565)
