CAC Sticker, PCGS Secure Holder. BD-1, R.4, the only known die pairing. This lovely early gold eagle offers pleasing yellow-gold surfaces with hints of prooflike reflectivity in the protected areas and pale olive highlights. It is a handsome coin overall. Of the three dates in the design type, the 1796 mintage of 4,146 pieces falls in the middle of the mintage figures for the Capped Bust Right, Small Eagle ten. 1795, the first date of the type, saw 5,583 pieces produced, while 1797, the final date of the three, had a mintage of 3,615 pieces. BD-1 represents the only known die pairing for the date. Scarce in all grades with perhaps 125 to 175 examples known. A very important opportunity, an ideal coin for a type set. (PCGS 8554)
