Item Description:
Scarce, first year of Capped Bust design. This particular variety has always been fascinating as the engraver began to enter the denomination as a quarter and discovered his mistake a bit too late and attempted to correct it. A neat piece of history on this popular issue. The present coin is primarily white, but not dipped out, as a light sheen of russet toning fades into silvery-gray toward the centers.
