1799 SM Stars Capped Bust Right MS64

 

With only 9 years of mintage, the Draped Bust Gold Eagle is the shortest series of any $10 gold coin design. Even with the second highest mintage of the series, only 37,449 examples were struck with under 550 known today. Graded in Mint State 64 condition, only 12 examples of the 1799 Draped Bust Gold Eagle have achieved that status with just 4 graded higher. As only 2 examples have been graded in MS65 condition, this 1799 Draped Bust Gold Eagle in MS64 condition is undoubtedly one of the finest known of the issue besides being an Absolute and Condition Rarity.
