Draped Bust (1796 - 1807). The Act of April 1792 authorized a number of coins to be struck by the new Mint facilities. The fledgling nation eagerly wanted to create its own species and Robert Scot designed the first silver coins to roll off the presses at the Philadelphia location.

Quarters were not among these and production didn't begin for the denomination until 1796 with Scot's draped bust design. His obverse Liberty on the quarter was surrounded by 15 stars.

The initial year featured a thinner eagle reverse designed by Gilbert Stuart. It was surrounded by a wreath and the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The quarter denomination was not popular and the small eagle design was discontinued. No other quarters were struck until eight years later.

This one year type is elusive with just 6,146 originally struck and is considered one of the crowning achievements in U. Heraldic Eagle 1804 - 1807. After the hiatus in the denomination's production, the Philadelphia Mint began striking quarter dollars in 1804. The draped bust Liberty designed by Robert Scot was used on the obverse with stars reduced to 13.

The reverse designed by newly hired John Reich was changed to feature a heraldic eagle drawn from the official seal. The eagle displayed wings spread with a shield and thirteen stars above.

The denomination inscription was added. While not as rare as the smaller eagle type, the Heraldic Eagle Draped Bust coinage is scarce and remains popular among type collectors and quarter dollar enthusiasts.
