Several different design types of Bust Quarters were struck from 1796 to 1838. The 1796 with its Small Eagle reverse is a one year only type. The same obverse was paired with a Heraldic Eagle for Bust Quarters dated 1804 to 1807.
From 1815 to 1828 a Capped Bust design was used and Bust Quarters from 1831 to 1838 had a nearly identical design but were smaller in diameter.
Here's a wonderful, first year of issue, U. S. quarter. It's also a one year Small Eagle type and only 6,146 coins were minted. This coin is superb for the grade with pleasing pewter-gray devices and a deeper blue-gray patina in the fields.
Well worn but still attractive and showing a clear date.
Basically perfect surfaces for the grade showing only honest wear.
Attractive steel gray surfaces
Pleasing color and surfaces. Some softness of strike as these often come.
Very attractive with light silver-gray surfaces that display considerable mint luster. The strike is even and the detail is excellent. A very pleasing example of this early type.
Excellent detail except for softness at the eagle's head on the reverse as struck. The color and surfaces are outstanding and suggest the Fine-15 grade is very conservative.
