Type III Reverse. This "bright white" lustrous example from the turn of the 20th century features the third reverse for the series. Just as the reverse was redesigned during 1892, resulting in two types of quarters from each Mint that year, during 1900 another hub revision occurred. Each successive hub revision made the eagle's wings slightly larger. The revised "Type III" reverse is easily recognized by the left-facing wingtip protruding beyond the top of the "E" in UNITED towards the rim. From our friends at Pinnacle Rarities.
