1798 QUARTER EAGLE

1798 Quarter Eagle

1798 Quarter Eagle - The obverse of the 1798 Quarter Eagle had stars arranged with six on the left and seven on the right. The issue had two reverses-with either four or five berries on the olive branch.

The Five Berry reverse is significantly scarcer of the two. This reverse was also used on the dimes of 1798 to 1800. Both reverse varieties have thirteen stripes on the shield.

The Four Berry coin is placed first in the emission sequence because the 1796 and 1797 reverse dies also have only four berries.

Both varieties have a total mintage of 1,094 coins; however, a delivery of 480 coins was made in December, 1799. About 20 to 25 examples survive today.
