    Exceptional 1796 No Stars Quarter In Mint Condition

    1796 No Stars MS 62 NGC. Of the greatest importance to serious collectors, the 1796 No Stars quarter eagle is one of the most distinctive and highly desirable of all design types in United States coinage. The difference between No Stars and With Stars quarter eagles is not simply one of the addition of stars to the No Stars die, as one might imagine. Rather, each is a separately produced variety, the With Stars variety having different characteristics other than the presence of stars. The obverse takes on the appearance of a medal, set as it is in an unadorned tondo and lacking any peripheral devices other than the word LIBERTY at the top of that side. The obverse is mostly bright green-gold while the reverse shows significant portions of reddish patina scattered about that side. A few minor adjustment marks are noted on the lower right side of the obverse and the upper right edge of the reverse. This piece is markedly superior to the AU 58 we sold in last year's FUN Sale that brought $129,000 (with the 10% buyer's fee included). Population: 2 in 62, only 2 are finer (8/98). (NGC ID# 25F2, PCGS# 7645)

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
