Description:
1806/5 B-1 Quarter, MS63
Dies of 1805 Browning-4
1806/5 25C MS63 PCGS. B-1, R.2. When steel coinage dies are used, they become hard and brittle, known as work hardening. Further use caused the dies to crack and eventually break apart. In many cases at the first Mint, these dies remained in use well beyond the date displayed on them. Attempts to alter the work hardened dies usually proved disastrous. However, in 1806 the Mint experimented with new dates for dies used in 1805. The 1806/5 B-1 quarter, O-104 half dollar, and BD-2 quarter eagle were each instances of dies used the previous year, and then overdated.

Technically speaking, the 1806/5 Browning-1 quarter is a late die state of 1805 Browning-4, and the 1806/5 BD-2 quarter eagle is a late die state of 1805 BD-1. The 1806/5 O-104 half dollar reuses the obverse die from 1805 O-105 in combination with a new reverse die never used in 1805.

About a dozen Mint State 1806/5 B-1 quarters exist, including five pieces graded MS63 that are tied for sixth finest known, according to the Rea-Koenings-Haroutunian Census in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint. This green-label PCGS specimen has deep steel-gray patina with hints of gold over sharp details and full frosty mint luster. Population: 4 in 63, 5 finer (7/13).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 23RD, PCGS# 5315)
