1801 $10 Capped Bust. NGC graded MS-61. Well struck and nice light gold toning. Smooth luster free from digs and marks graces satiny and dynamic golden surfaces. What also sparks our interest is the varying hues of gold that mingle broadly with rich gold iridescence. An attractive Mint State that shows off its bold strike proudly. This is the most affordable early eagle variety, as the dies were among the more productive of the type. The majority of the coins dated 1801 are this variety. Diagnostic features include star 8 near the cap with two points aiming at it; star 13 near the bust. An estimated 30,000 to 40,000 made (our of 44,344 plus or minus total for the year) (PCGS # 8564) .
Estimated Value $26,000 - 28,000.

Realized $34,500
