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.
A pleasing example of this rare date with nice color and surfaces and no consequential marks. The second year quarters were struck at the U.S. Mint with a mintage of just 6,738.
Well detailed for the grade with dove-gray design elements contrasting nicely against gunmetal gray fields. A very pleasing example of this scarce date which saw a scant 6,738 pieces made.

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.
A late die state with a heavy die crack bisecting the obverse from the rim above Liberty to the rim below the 6 in the date. A neat collector coin with pleasing color and surfaces.

CAC. Evenly struck with pleasing surfaces and nice detail for the grade.
Well defined and problem-free with predominately dove-gray surfaces that are accented with a touch of powder-blue and sea-green.
Just one pair of dies used in 1824 so all are overdates. Mintage figures vary from 16,000 to 24,000 so this is a tough coin in all grades. This example is well detailed with pleasing color and surfaces.
