Capped Bust Quarters (1815 – 1838) - Small Diameter (1831 – 1838) In 1831 quarter production began again using John Reich’s design reworked by William Kneass with two notable differences. The new quarter was smaller in diameter and struck at 24.3mm. And, the reverse was absent the ribbon with the incuse E PLURIBUS UNUM above the heraldic eagle. This capped design was used until 1838 when replaced by the Seated motif designs. All examples were struck at the Philadelphia facilities and both large size and small sized capped quarters remain highly collectible today.
