Attractive, Problem-Free 1796 Quarter Dollar, XF45 PCGS1796 25C XF45 PCGS. High 6. B-2, R.5. Always a popular coin with collectors and investors alike, the 1796 is not only the first year of issue for the quarter dollar denomination, but it is also a one year type coin, the reverse design being changed in the next year of issue, 1804. This example was perfectly centered at the time of striking, with complete dentils around each side, and generally excellent details on the obverse. As with most 1796 quarters, the reverse is poorly struck near the center, with virtually no definition on the eagle's head. The surfaces are very smooth, with an attractive coating of even brownish-gray patina over both obverse and reverse. A pair of claw-like scars are evident near the lower right obverse rim, at approximately 5 o'clock, and a pair of shallow scratches reside on the upper left reverse, including one which extends just below the STA of STATES, but the relatively modestly worn surfaces are otherwise virtually free of noticeable post-striking impairments.
