1803 $10 Capped Bust. Small reverse stars. . BD-3, Breen-6844. NGC graded AU-53 CAC Verified. Light golden toning. Nice bold details for the grade. A worldly dose of heavy original luster still enlivens the broad expanse of surface on both sides. The fields are choice for the grade, and the strike is bold enough to warrant special mention. On this third variety with the small reverse stars, the upper beak ends near the star point but does not touch; the right foot of E in STATES is over a cloud space, while the leaf ends a short distance to the right of the I in AMERICA. This is by far the most available of the six varieties of 1803. There may be as many as 150 or more examples that have survived of BD-3, making it a good pick for ones Type Set. Pop 10; 105 finer. (PCGS # 8565) .
Estimated Value $18,000 - 19,000.

Realized $23,000
