    1801 BD-2 Eagle, MS61
    Scarce Early Die State

    1801 $10 BD-2, R.2, MS61 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die state a/a, the scarce early die state before the vertical spines appeared in the cap, and without clash marks. Two die varieties of 1801 eagles are known. BD-1 is elusive, having star 1 close to the curl and star 8 distant from the cap; BD-2 is plentiful, with star 1 distant and star 8 close. BD-2 is usually found in the late die states. This pleasing Mint State eagle has frosty luster and brilliant yellow-gold surfaces with myriad handling marks on each side that are mostly trivial and consistent with the grade.
