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.
Browning-2. Well detailed with fairly light colored surfaces.
Basically perfect surfaces for the grade showing only honest wear.
CAC. Problem-free and very attractive.
Well detailed with beautiful light silver-gray surfaces that retain a touch of original luster. A wonderful coin for the grade and a great addition for a quality type set.
Pleasing color and surfaces. Some softness of strike as these often come.
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.
CAC approved. A well-worn but attractive early quarter with pleasing dove-gray surfaces.
Well detailed and problem-free with nice even dove-gray surfaces.
A pleasing, problem-free example of this early type.
Well detailed with attractive surfaces. A nice coin for a mid-grade type set.
