1806 B-3 Quarter Dollar, MS65
The Finest Known Example
Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint Plate Coin

1806 25C MS65 NGC. B-3, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The U.S. Mint combined six obverse dies and eight reverse dies to produce 10 quarter dollar die marriages in 1806, including the Overdate and nine Normal Date varieties. The entire series of Draped Bust quarters of 1796, and 1804 to 1807, includes 20 die marriages. Exactly half of those varieties are dated 1806. The B-3 and B-9 die combinations are the most plentiful of the year. However, only 11 Mint State examples of B-3 are recorded in the Condition Census, and just two of those are graded MS65. The Eric P. Newman specimen is slightly finer with the additional Star designation for eye appeal, and it is the finest known 1806 B-3 quarter. This exquisite piece is the plate coin for Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint.

This Gem represents the latest known die state and exhibits die defects in the lower left part of the shield. The reverse die was used first for early die states of the B-3, second for all examples of B-4, and third for late die states of B-3.

Exceptional toning appears on both sides of this lovely Gem, with brilliant underlying mint frost. Both sides have light silver centers with delicate champagne toning, changing to lovely magenta, russet, cobalt-blue, and turquoise. The eye appeal is outstanding.
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 @ $15.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23RD, PCGS# 5314)
