    1795 BD-5 Ten Dollar, AU50
    13 Leaves Reverse
    First Year of Denomination

    1795 $10 13 Leaves, BD-5, R.5, AU50 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State e/c. Although John Dannreuther believes that the BD-5 mintage was 500 to 1,000 pieces, he estimates only 35 to 45 survivors. BD-5 is the second-rarest 1795 ten dollar variety, with only the famous 9 Leaves BD-3 considered rarer. BD-5 is identified by its attenuated obverse stars 9 and 10, and a large die lump on the reverse near 2 o'clock. The Small Eagle design is a three-year type, with the first-year 1795 slightly more available than its 1796 and 1797 successors. This example displays minimally marked almond-gold surfaces. The high points show light wear, along with peach-gold toning. Certified in a circa-2000 holder.
    From The Gibney Family Collection.
