This important coin was the first Washington quarter without the eagle reverse! Issued more than two decades before the 50 State series, this original no-eagle quarter with the Colonial Drummer reverse is needed by any collector putting together a date and mint mark set of Washington or Statehood quarters - no collection is complete without it! And this 1776-1976 Bicentennial quarter isn`t just any quarter... it`s a Proof from San Francisco created especially for collectors. Instead of the usual copper-nickel clad, this quarter was minted in 40% silver. Plus, it has the lowest mintage of all 1976 Washington quarter issues. While regular-issue Bicentennial quarters are occasionally found in pocket change, this special 40% silver Choice Proof coin is not. Don`t miss your opportunity to add the very first no-eagle Bicentennial quarter to your collection!
