Owner Comments:

B-2, R.3. This quarter dollar issue of 1796 is a single year type coin with the Draped Bust obverse design, taken from artwork by Gilbert Stuart, combined with a Small Eagle reverse. This entire mintage was accomplished through four individual coinage deliveries, 1,800 on April 9; 2,530 on May 27; 1,564 on June 14; and 252 on February 28, 1797. Possibly as many as 500 survive today, many now being in low grades.

The advantage of this example is that it is problem-free, save for abundant wear over each side. The date is completely visible along with the outline of the bust. Over half of the stars are also visible. The reverse has noticeable portions of the eagle and wreath visible, as well as partial letters in the legends.
