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.
CAC. Browning 2. This scarce first year U.S. quarter had a mintage of just 6,146 pieces. The reverse on this example is well-worn with the eagle clear and parts of the wreath and legend showing; in line with the AG-3 grade. The obverse however has the detail of a full GOOD. The bust, date, legend, and all 15 stars are clear. Both sides are quite clean with a very pleasing medium-gray color.
B-1. R-4. The better of the 2 varieties and identified by the position of the 6 equally spaced between the drapery and the rim. This is an extremely pleasing high-end Fine-15 with strong detail and a nice even strike. The fields are a nice steel-gray with the devices being a slightly lighter dove-gray. An important coin in very desirable condition.
