    1806/5 Quarter Eagle, BD-2, AU Details
    Rare Overdate Variety

    1806/5 $2 1/2 7x6 Stars, BD-2, High R.5 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Ex: Hilt Collection. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b. This is by far the rarer of the two 1806 quarter eagle varieties, with only 25 to 35 pieces believed extant. This obverse die was first employed in 1805, but was again annealed and then overdated for a small run of 1806 coinage. This is the third of four uses for this reverse, which was previously employed the BD-1 1805 and BD-1 1806 varieties, and later for the sole 1807 variety of this denomination.

    This piece shows a bold, even strike and sharp detail, though some crisscrossing adjustment marks are observed on the reverse. NGC notes evidence of light cleaning, but the surfaces have since acquired deep orange-gold coloration and retain noticeable semiprooflike mirroring in the fields. A highly appealing example of this rare overdate variety.
    From The Liberty USA Collection. (NGC ID# BFVX, Variety PCGS# 45513, Base PCGS# 7655)
