ELIASBERG PEDIGREE. GEM SATIN SURFACES. CONDITION CENSUS.
NGC Graded Higher:
As the United States' premier Ten-Dollar gold piece, the 1795 holds a place of honor in the pantheon of numismatic rarities. The original mintage for this issue is just 5,583 pieces, and it includes the 13 Leaves and 9 Leaves Guide Book varieties. The former is more plentiful in the market, but we caution buyers that the 1795 is a legitimately rare coin regardless of individual Guide Book variety or die marriage. No more than 3% of the original mintage is believed extant in all grades, and the unflagging popularity of first-year issues has resulted in extreme collector and investor demand for high-grade, problem-free examples.
