    1796 Draped Bust, Small Eagle Quarter, Fine 12
    Low- Mintage, One-year Type Coin

    1796 25C Fine 12 PCGS. B-1, R.4. The Draped Bust, Small Eagle quarter is a numismatic landmark, representing the first production of this important denomination. The date also scores points with type collectors as the only Draped Bust quarter with the Small Eagle reverse. For quarter enthusiasts, the issue carries the cachet of a low-mintage (6,146 pieces) date that has always been considered one of the keys to the series.
    The present coin displays attractive steel-blue and golden patina over pleasing surfaces. The low 6 in the date identifies this specimen as an example of the scarce B-1 variety, much sought-after by students of early die marriages. Moderate even wear is distributed over all surfaces. Altogether, the coin offered here is a desirable example of a classic issue that will please collectors of many disciplines. Housed in a green label holder.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
