    1803 Small Stars Reverse Eagle, AU50
    Very Rare BD-4, Boldly Clashed Dies

    1803 $10 Small Stars Reverse AU50 NGC. BD-4, R.6. A single 1803-dated obverse die was employed for striking all six eagle varieties of the year. The reverse shows small stars, the diagnostic being a star with a point within the eagle's beak but not touching either the upper or lower part. Dannreuther estimates that only 25 to 30 examples survive of this very rare die pairing. This attractive AU example appears to be a middle die state. It shows bold die clashing on each side but no obvious die cracks. The beautiful color is deep orange-red with tinges of lilac and mint near the obverse portrait. No planchet adjustment marks appear. A great acquisition for type- or year-set purposes.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2629, PCGS# 8565)
