Lot 1177

1797 $10 Capped Bust. Large eagle. PCGS graded EF-40 PQ. A pleasing, well-balanced example of this scarce type, nice and clean for the grade and perfect for type purposes. The obverse die shows a crack through the final 7 of the date. Despite this flaw, this was a workhorse of a die, appearing on three of the four 1797 Eagle varieties. The reverse features a heraldic eagle (Robert Scot's rendering of the Great Seal of the United States). Soft, green-gold colors, characteristic of the alloys of the early 1800's. In an old, green-label holder. PCGS reports only 18 examples in this grade (PCGS # 8559) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

Realized $10,350
