1796 Draped Bust Quarter Dollar. . Browning-2. PCGS graded Fine-12. Old green holder. Nice details for the grade. Toning on both sides. Popular key date. First issue date. The "High 6" variety of the issue, one of just two known die pairings for this low mintage single year type. This is the more common variety of 1796. A smooth-surfaced, original toned specimen of this low mintage date. The rims shows long, match dentils as is a common trait for this year. The dentils provide a frame around the central device. There are a few old hairlines on the bust and one at Liberty's eye; with the reverse slightly choicer than the obverse, but overall a nicely balanced coin.

Only 44 graded in fine condition at PCGS. (PCGS # 5310) .
