Popular 1796 Quarter Dollar, Good 4, B-21796 25C Good 4 PCGS. B-2, R.3. The High 6 variety is seen more frequently than the Low 6. Certain issues are recognized by unusual characteristics. The 1796 quarter is one of them, almost invariably found with a sharp obverse and weaker reverse than can sometimes appear a full grade less. Such is the case with this piece. The obverse appears to be fully VG, and the reverse just makes the Good level.
The surfaces have pleasing, natural light gray color, deeper in the fields. The obverse has a few primarily insignificant marks. It also seems that PCGS graded the coin slightly lower due to a vertical scratch on the reverse. Still and all, this is an attractive and desirable 1796 quarter to represent the early history of the denomination struck in the U.S. Mint at Philadelphia.
