This was the first-year design for the 1797 Eagle with Heraldic Eagle and or Large Eagle reverse, following the Small Eagle Type. With a mintage of 10,940 pieces, there are only 200- 250 examples are known today in all grades. Brilliant yellow gold surfaces exhibit a uniformly bright satin texture with a faint amount of semi-reflectiveness that’s evident in the fields. Sharply struck, with no visual distractions or adjustment marks evident. A Key date example of early U.S. Coinage. A cornerstone addition to any level of collection of U.S. Numismatics.
