1801 $10 Capped Bust. PCGS graded MS-61. Lovely golden toning with reflective surfaces. Well struck. A velvety smooth and lustrous gem with a gradation of faint champagne orange on both sides contributing to the vibrant golden color. The contact from the dies is virtually complete, although perhaps a hint of weakness is seen at the second star (counting from the bottom left), where it meets the overlaps a high point in the design on the side with the eagle. A decidedly prestigious early gold piece, this, one with eye-appeal, uncommon choiceness, and the consistent interest from numismatists to keep in the front ranks (PCGS # 8564) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 28,000.

Realized $33,350
