Description

1796 Draped Bust Quarter. B-2. Rarity-3. AU-55 (PCGS). OGH.

Uncommonly Sharp 1796 Draped Bust, Small Eagle Quarter

Lovely mottled plum, mauve and lilac highlights dance together on the surfaces of this lustrous steel-toned beauty. Liberty's curls are fully defined and show just touches of light wear, while the eagle's wing feathers on the reverse are complete. Even a few details from the eagle's eye are visible. Close inspection with a glass reveals only the most minor surface defects, none of which detract from the substantial eye appeal, and only one of which before Liberty's neck would make a worthwhile pedigree marker. As the United States' first quarter and the only year for which the Small Eagle Reverse is seen on this denomination, this is a popular type coin in all grades, especially so at this level of preservation.

PCGS#: 5310

Pedigree: From the RLS Collection.
