Description

Desirable Very Fine 1796 Quarter

1796 25C VF25 PCGS. B-2, R.3. Light tan-gold and powder-blue toning visits this attractive and important piece. A thin mark beneath star 15 is mentioned solely to provide a pedigree, since no other abrasions are of any consequence. Moderate mint-made adjustment marks are present beneath Liberty's chin, and the strike is also soft opposite on the eagle's right (facing) wing. The remainder of the design is nicely brought up, although the eagle's breast and Liberty's hair displays wear appropriate for the grade. The Draped Bust, Small Eagle quarter is notably rare as a type coin, and was struck only in 1796. The 1796 is also the first quarter issue struck for circulation, although uncollectible patterns were made in 1792. The early silver type set collector will appreciate the significance of the present opportunity. Certified in a green label holder.
From The Tide Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
