Description

1796 Quarter, B-2, VF25
Pleasing and Problem Free

1796 25C VF25 PCGS. B-2, R.3. The B-2 variety shows star 15 slightly farther away from the bust than on the B-1. Also, the 6 in the date is high and nearly touches the bust, and the upper-left serif of the Y in LIBERTY is slightly above the upper-right serif of the T. The B-1 is slightly scarcer than the B-2, but most collectors would love to own a 1796 Bust quarter of either variety. Indeed, a collection of U.S. type coinage cannot be considered complete without an example of this one-year type coin.
Both sides of this VF25 example display pleasing contrast between the light silver-gray devices and the darker fields. The latter consist of a medley of deep gray, electric-blue, and reddish patination, which also resides in the recesses of the design elements. Liberty's hair, facial features, and drapery show considerable detail, as do the eagle's wing feathers. The dentilation is strong, especially on the obverse, which is always the case for the type. The surfaces are remarkably clean for a coin having seen circulation. Overall, this piece exhibits great overall eye appeal and is problem-free for the grade.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
