Intriguing 1806/5 BD-2 Quarter Eagle1806/5 $2 1/2 7x6 Stars PCGS Genuine. Breen-6123, BD-2, High R.5. The PCGS number ending in .98 suggests Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, the coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been cleaned. The PCGS Damage may refer to the many surface ticks primarily on the obverse. The 1806/5 overdate is an important rarity in a series where nearly every coin is a rarity. A fascinating variety with the obverse overdated after its use in 1805. The reverse was also used in 1805, so technically, the 1805 and the 1806/5 are the same die variety!
This boldly defined green-gold example has reflective surfaces with a few minor marks on each side. Central adjustment marks are evident on the reverse, creating strike weakness on the opposing part of the obverse.
