1807 B-1 Quarter Dollar, MS64 CAC
The Third Finest Known
Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint Plate Coin

1807 25C MS64 NGC. CAC. B-1, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. There are two known die varieties for 1807 quarters, struck from unique combinations of obverse and reverse dies. The reverse of the B-1 offered here is from the same die that was used earlier for the 1805 B-4 and 1806/5 B-1 quarters. As expected, the reverse die cracks are more advanced here than on the previous two varieties. Both dies have heavy clash marks, but there is no evidence of die lapping that is seen on the latest die state. This Choice Mint State piece is the Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint plate coin.

1807 was a watershed year at the Mint, marking the start of a gradual transition from the Draped Bust design to the Capped Bust design, the latter created by Johann Reich, the assistant engraver who was hired on April 1, 1807.

While the Condition Census shows multiple MS64 examples, this piece from the Eric P. Newman Collection also exhibits the Star designation for its exceptional eye appeal. Both sides exhibit frosty mint luster and gorgeous toning. The obverse has light gold at the center, with rings of russet, deep blue, turquoise, amber, and magenta. The reverse is mostly light champagne with peripheral russet, blue, and turquoise. Census: 11 in 64 (2 in 64 ), 5 finer (10/13).
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 @ $30.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23RF, PCGS# 5316)
