1795 13 Leaves $10
Field Marks. BD-2, High R.4. Date widely spaced with bust over tip of 5, star 11 distant from Y; leaf touches U of UNITED. This die marriage shares its reverse with the 1795 BD-1 eagle. Modestly worn, generally bold definition in an example of the United States Mint's first ten dollar gold issue, this 1795 eagle would make an important addition to any advanced holding. Bathed in warm khaki-orange patina, the color brightens to more of a golden-orange shade as the coin dips into a light. A tad lightly struck in the centers, a fairly common attribute for examples of this die combination, with crisscrossing mint-made adjustment marks at the center of the reverse that are not out of place on any early eagle. There are, however, a trio of diagonal marks under the wreath at the base of the reverse. Flickers of original luster are still evident in the protected areas around the peripheral devices. An historic issue. (PCGS 8551) About Extremely Fine, edge marks
