1865 $20 Brother Jonathan PCGS MS63

1803 $10 Gold, Small Stars Reverse, PCGS MS63 - $75,000.00

1803 $10 PCGS MS63 Small Stars Reverse, BD-3. A High Grade, Sharply Struck Example Of This Popular Early Type. 1803 Eagle Small Stars Reverse MS63 PCGS. Breen-6844, Taraszka-28, BD-3, R.4. The 1803 Capped Bust Right, Heraldic Eagle ten dollar gold piece boasts a small mintage. Six different die varieties are known for this issue, with one obverse die used in all six marriages.

Please contact me by email or telephone 1-800-624-1870 to reserve this great coin.

The reverse die used for BD-3 is characterized by the position of the eagle's beak nearly touching the star below its point, and the right foot of E in STATES positioned over a cloud space.Mint State 1803 eagles are rarities, even the "common" varieties. This specimen is not one of the common varieties.

It is an R-4 specimen.Die marriages were of little interest to collectors of the 19th century, and catalogers seldom differentiated between varieties in their lot descriptions. Numismatists became more conscious of these important differences in the early part of the 20th century, and auction catalogs began to describe the small stars reverse in basic detail. In the Stickney Collection (Henry Chapman, 6/1907), lot 623, an 1803 eagle is described: "1803 R. Small stars. Extremely fine. Mint lustre. See plate." The coin sold for $25, a good price at the time.

The present coin is sharply struck, with complete detail on the feathers on the eagle's breast. The surfaces display bright, satiny luster, with attractive reddish patina on each side. A few light obverse abrasions can be detected with a loupe. Rarity, historic interest, and strong visual appeal combine to make this offering an important opportunity for the early gold specialist.
