1800 $10 Capped Bust. . BD-1, Rarity-3+. PCGS graded AU-55. Well struck with semi reflective surfaces still intact. Attractive light golden toning adds to its appeal. Prooflike surfaces that are almost mirrors with pleasant, glowing golden color. A great deal of stress is laid on the strike detail of these early Eagles, and this piece is well struck on all devices with the sole exception of the 13th star. In an old green label holder.

Production fell in 1800, with 5,999 1800 capped bust eagles believed struck. Just a single die variety is known. The obverse die broke early, Breen notes, possibly ending production early and accounting for the scarcity. Pop 24; 60 finer. (PCGS # 8563) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 27,000.

 
Realized $32,200
