Description

Nice Choice VG 1796 Quarter

1796 25C VG10 PCGS. B-2, R.3. This is the more "common" of the two known varieties, and is attributed by the 6 in the date nearly touching the bust, and the space between the tops of the TY in LIBERTY.
Walter Breen, in his Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins, writes of the 1796 quarter: "As both obverse dies contained only 15 stars, they must have been completed before anyone realized that Tennessee would most likely join the Union as the sixteenth state." According to mint records showing delivery dates, about 1,800 impressions struck from the dies followed Tennessee's June 1, 1796 admission.
Soft bluish-gray toning occupies the fields of this Choice VG specimen, highlighting the lighter gray design features. Both sides are nicely defined for the grade, and close examination reveals no marks out of the ordinary for a coin that has seen moderate to heavy circulation. No adjustment marks are readily apparent.
From The Jerry Kochel Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
