    1799 BD-8 Irregular Date Ten Dollar, MS61
    Small Obverse Stars, R.5

    1799 $10 Small Obverse Stars, BD-8, R.5, MS61 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c. The 17 in the date, especially the 7, is canted crazily to the right, and on the reverse the eagle appears to bite the top of star 12, which also shows two points touching the scroll. In this late die state there is die crumbling on the obverse rim above stars 1 and 2. There are many small and some large die cracks that appear on both sides, most notably the ones through MER and C in AMERICA and the D in UNITED on the reverse. Although there is some light field haze, the surfaces show full mint luster underneath. Some light planchet adjustment marks appear on the lower scroll. This piece was incorrectly attributed in our 2005 auction as the more-available (R.3) BD-10, but in reality it is the rare (R.5) BD-8.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 7881, where it brought $26,450; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 4326, where it realized $35,250.
    From The Rube Collection. (NGC ID# 2623, Variety PCGS# 45731, Base PCGS# 98562)
