Description:
1806 B-9 Draped Bust Quarter, MS66
The Eliasberg Specimen, Finest Known
1806 25C MS66 NGC. B-9, R.1. The obverse has a bisecting crack from the lower border through the 1 and hair, lightly to the E in LIBERTY. The reverse has a small rim break over the second T in STATES. There are no clash marks evident on either side, indicating that this example is quite an early die state. The upper hair is detailed and the second curl at star 1 is complete, further confirming its early die state.
The B-9 die marriage is the most common among all 1806 quarters and probably ranks as the single most common Draped Bust quarter of any date. However, the present coin is finer than any other examples of the variety. Only about half a dozen examples of the entire design type from 1804 to 1807 are equal to this piece or finer. It is truly a prize for the connoisseur and will prove to be a real showpiece for its next owner.
This incredible Premium Gem carries a provenance from Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., and was off the market for several decades until it appeared in the 1997 sale of that collection. Both sides are highly lustrous with brilliant mint frost and traces of champagne toning. There are no blemishes on either side. Slight peripheral weakness is noted along the right side of the obverse and reverse with central weakness evident on the reverse, the latter from subtle adjustment marks in that area. Minor planchet streaks are present on this piece, as they are on most or all high-grade B-9 quarters.
Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1363; American Numismatic Rarities (12/2005), lot 543.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23RD, PCGS# 5314)
