Attractive 1796 B-2 Draped Bust Small Eagle Quarter1796 25C B-2, R.3. VG8 NGC. Die State II. High 6; Small Eagle. The final star is comparatively distant from the bust. Original lavender-mauve patina embraces this attractively detailed example. The low mintage of 6,146 pieces ensures the scarcity of this important issue, which is a single year type and is also the first year of the denomination. A few faint hairlines from past handling, but the surfaces are reasonably attractive for a coin in this grade. This is one of the most difficult type coins to obtain.
