    Near-Mint 1803 Eagle, BD-3
    Small Stars Reverse

    1803 $10 Small Stars Reverse AU58 NGC. Breen-6844, Taraszka-28, BD-3, R.4. A total of 15,017 eagles were minted in 1803, with an estimated 7,500-10,000 examples representing the BD-3 variety. This available design is recognized by the location of the right foot of E in STATES over a cloud space, and the upper point of the eagle's beak near the star point. John Dannreuther estimates 150-200 examples are extant in all grades.
    The present coin displays attractive yellow-gold surfaces, with a light overlay of reddish patina. A remarkable amount of luster remains in the sheltered areas around the devices. The striking details are full on both sides, including all hair curls and breast feathers. The lightly abraded surfaces reveal only two marks of note, both located above the eagle's head. Overall visual appearance is quite sharp. Census: 41 in 58, 67 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2629, PCGS# 8565)

    Weight: 17.50 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
