1799 Capped Bust Right Eagle. BD-7, Taraszka-19. Rarity-3. Small Obverse Stars. AU-53 (PCGS). The vibrant yellow-gold surfaces are accented by subtle shades of crimson and powder blue iridescence around the devices. Magnification reveals just trivial scattered bagmarks in the fields, and the eye appeal remains quite strong for the assigned grade. Uniformly bold with strong dentils, the dies exhibit BD Die State c/d with crumbling near stars 1 and 2. An ideal candidate for both type and variety purposes. BD-7 is the most available die marriage of the 1799 Small Obverse Stars<em> Guide Book</em> variety of the 1799 eagle, and the second most plentiful of the issue as a whole after BD-10 (Large Obverse Stars). Dannreuther estimates that 10,000 to 15,000 examples were coined from the 1799 BD-7 dies. This one is remarkably lustrous and attractive, surely placing it among the more desirable survivors.
