1795 $10 13 Leaves MS65 PCGS. BD-5, R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State e/c. Just a handful of United States coins are alluring and important enough to capture the attention and bidding activity of people who do not even consider themselves coin collectors. The coin offered here is just such a coin -- this truly spectacular example of the first ever ten dollar gold piece released by the United States Mint. As such, it is arguably the most historically important United States gold coin ever issued.

Based on previous experience, I opened this hoping for information about buying one for under $1000. I would be willing to accept a lower grade.

I always thought she was wearing a cowboy hat until I realized it's an errant strand of hair atop her cap. I've always found this design a bit interesting but that detail just peeves me.

And then don't get me started on the skinny chicken on the back

I will always appreciate the history of the piece, but I'll pass on saving up the cash

Beautiful coin! It always makes me wonder how these coins can stay in such great shape for 225 years.
