Mid-Grade 1796 Quarter, PCGS-Certified1796 25C VF20 PCGS. B-2, R.3. We feel confident that this moderately worn 1796 Quarter will have no difficulty finding its way into a circulated type set. Expertly centered on the planchet, the strike was most likely well executed. There are also no areas of excessive loss of detail, a feature that suggests even distribution of the wear. Both sides are toned in medium gray shades that yield to rich cobalt-blue undertones at direct angles. The surfaces are moderately abraded with a few mentionable distractions: a scrape on Liberty's cheek, another obverse scrape in the left field inside star 3, and a tiny dig in the reverse field below the first S in STATES. With a paltry original mintage of 6,146 pieces, historical significance as the premier U.S. Quarter, and well known status as a one-year type coin, it should come as no surprise that the 1796 is a popular and highly sought issue at all levels of preservation.
