1805 B-2 Quarter Dollar, MS63
Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint Plate Coin

1805 25C MS63 NGC. CAC. B-2, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Increased demand led to the production of 121,394 quarters in 1805, although Spanish colonial coinage (the Piece of Eight and its fractional pieces) continued to serve the U.S. commerce as the principal medium of exchange, as it would far into the future.

Five die marriages utilized four obverse dies and four reverse dies. The B-2 and B-3 varieties are the most plentiful for 1805. The Eric P. Newman 1805 B-2 quarter is an early die state example with heavy clash marks on the reverse, but with no die cracks. This example is the Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint plate coin and ranks among the 10 finest survivors.

The obverse of this lustrous Choice Mint State piece is toned in medium shades of gray and gold, with richer toning at the edges. The reverse is mostly lighter silver, with mottled red and gold toning at the shield and arrows, and along part of the border.
Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $20.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23RC, PCGS# 5313)

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
