    Desirable 1796 Small Eagle Quarter VF20, B-2

    1796 25C VF20 NGC. High 6, B-2, R.3. Star 15 is twice as far from Liberty's bust as on the B-1 variety. These are the only two known die pairings for this initial quarter dollar date. This was the only year for the production of the Small Eagle reverse type, and, considering the skimpy mintage of 6,146 pieces, it is not surprising that examples of this issue are valuable and highly sought after by collectors at any grade level. The current offering presents an attractively original piece that displays layerings of light to medium to charcoal-gray coloration, and wonderful accents of electric-blue near the obverse and reverse peripheries. Other than the eagle's head, the remaining level of design detail is excellent for the grade, and surface marks are minimal.
    From The Nick-A-Jack Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RA, PCGS# 5310)
