1803 $10 Small Stars Reverse, XF45 PCGS
BD-3, R.4. A single obverse die was combined with six different reverse dies to create the six known 1803 eagle marriages. The BD-3 die combination uses the same die that previously appeared on 1801 BD-2 eagles; that variety recognized as the most plentiful in the early eagle series. Subtle reddish-gold surfaces exhibit traces of original mint luster within selected crevices of the devices and legends. Typical wear for the assigned grade with no singularly mentionable large or detracting abrasions. Some striking weakness is evident on the left side of the obverse. Certainly a noteworthy early eagle destined for a fine type collection. (PCGS 8565)
