Description

1796 Draped Bust Quarter. B-2. Rarity-3. G-4 (PCGS).

A rare, one-year type with just 6,146 pieces produced, the 1796 Quarter enjoys extremely strong collector demand at all levels of preservation. The present lot offers a well-worn survivor that does, however, retain outline definition to all of the major devices on the obverse. The reverse is only marginally less well defined, with only the lower-left peripheral area worn smooth. A pair of vertical scrapes over the left-center reverse appear to have been with the coin for many, many years, and they have toned in the same dove-gray shades that blanket both sides. The PCGS holder is an older variant with a green insert.

PCGS#: 5310
