1807 B-2 Quarter Dollar, MS66 CAC
The Finest Known Example
Second Finest 1807 Quarter

1807 25C MS66 NGC. CAC. B-2, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The two major grading services have certified 10 Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle quarters better than MS65, and two of the 10 are offered in the present sale of coins from the Eric P. Newman Collection. These two coins are both NGC certified MS66* and represent exceptional opportunities for the connoisseur. This 1807 B-2 quarter is the finest known example of the variety, and the second finest 1807 quarter of either variety.

The obverse and reverse dies are both unique to this variety, appearing nowhere else in the early quarter series. The obverse has a crack from the rim at 5 o'clock to the drapery on this intermediate die state. The reverse has the usual die crack through the left arm of the T in UNITED that crosses the wing to the ribbon. Later die states have both dies shattered, explaining the scarcity of the variety. While the current references rate the 1807 B-1 as R.2 and the 1807 B-2 as R.3, our experience is that only one-fourth of all surviving 1807 quarters are from the B-2 die pair.

This spectacular early quarter is covered with a gorgeous blend of orange and gold at the center, within a ring of rich blue and turquoise toning. The reverse has attractive cobalt-blue and turquoise peripheries, with the central areas exhibiting a beautiful blend of orange and gold toning. This breathtaking early quarter will captivate the toning enthusiast.
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 @ $40.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23RF, PCGS# 5316)
