Description:
1805 B-4 Quarter Dollar, MS64+ CAC
The Finest Known Example
1805 25C MS64+ NGC. CAC. B-4, Low R.4. Ex: Cruzan 1964. Elias Boudinot served a decade as director of the Mint from October 1795 until July 1805, retiring to pursue philanthropic interests. Robert Patterson was appointed to the post, serving as the fourth Mint Director until his death in July 1824. His son, Robert Maskell Patterson, served the same post as the sixth Mint Director, ushering in the Seated Liberty coinage that marked the end of the early coinage designs.

The Condition Census in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint records only seven Mint State examples of the 1805 B-4 quarter, including a single MS64 that appeared in a 1988 auction, and remains unseen since then. The Eric P. Newman example is slightly finer, and it is the finest known 1805 B-4.

While four 1805 quarter varieties have either a shared obverse or a shared reverse, the B-4 was minted from dies that had no other appearances in 1805. However, the obverse die reappeared on the 1806 B-1 overdate, and the reverse die was used for that same overdate, and for the 1807 B-1 quarter. Technically, the 1805 B-4 and 1806/5 B-1 quarters are different die states of the same variety.

This Choice Mint State example from the Eric P. Newman Collection is evenly toned with a lovely blend of medium gray and gold patina on both sides. The surfaces are far above average for the variety. A typical strike, this example lacks full detail on the upper hair and on the shield.
