Description

Challenging 1796 Quarter, B-2, VG10

1796 25C VG10 PCGS. B-2, R.3. The second rarest silver type, trailing only the half dollars of 1796 to 1797, which also combine the Draped Bust and Small Eagle designs. Two die varieties are known for the 1796 quarter, commonly referred to as the Low 6 (B-1) and the High 6 (B-2). B-2 is moderately more available than B-1, although both varieties are subjected to remarkable demand from early type collectors. The present piece is a cream-gray example with glimpses of deeper russet throughout the borders. Undisturbed by marks aside from a few wispy hairlines and a faint thin line through the R in AMERICA.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
