Description

1796 Draped Bust Quarter, B-2, VF35
Only Small Eagle Issue

1796 25C VF35 PCGS. B-2, R.3. The Philadelphia Mint produced no quarters until 1796, when a small mintage of 6,146 pieces was accomplished, using a total of two obverse and one reverse dies to complete the run. Afterward, no more quarters were struck until 1804, making the 1796 the only date with a Small Eagle reverse. All these factors make this issue extremely important to type collectors as well as series enthusiasts.
The high 6 in the date of this coin identifies it as a representative of the more available BD-2 variety. This coin retains much of its original design detail, with considerable mint luster remaining in sheltered areas. The eagle's head displays the usual flatness, but only the high points of the design show actual wear. No large or seriously distracting flaws are apparent. The historic importance, low mintage, and aesthetic appeal of this coin make it a prize for the discerning collector.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
