    1799 Ten Dollar, AU Details
    Better BD-6, Small Obverse Stars

    1799 $10 Small Obverse Stars, BD-6, R.5 -- Damaged -- NGC Details. AU. Bass-Dannreuther Die State da. The earlier of the two major die states, without breaks on the dentils below the date. The radial crack through star 8 to the cap is present, but very faint. The 1799 is a collectible date, courtesy of BD-7 and BD-10, but BD-6 is very scarce to rare. BD-6 combines the obverse of BD-5 with the reverse of BD-7, and was likely struck only briefly before a break expanded on the back of Liberty's cap, taking the obverse die out of service. This wheat-gold representative shows a pleasing amount of luster, along with light wear on the cheek and shoulder. A few moderate marks as scattered, including a diagonal line on the shield.
