1796 $10 PCGS AU53 ex: D.L. Hansen

Popular Early Gold Eagle

In Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, John Dannreuther estimates that the mintage may be as low as 3,500 coins for this date as many of the issues from earlier in the year may have been dated 1795. An underrated date compared to the earlier issue of 1795, it is estimated that 125 to 175 pieces survive heavy melting in previous generations. This piece is a lovely AU example with light orange-golden highlights and plenty of luster.
