1806/5 25C MS63 PCGS
B-1, R.2. One of the prized Condition Census coins from this die pairing, as so few survived at the Mint State level, especially so in finer grades. Deep blue and rose toning spans the surfaces with the centers more rose while the surrounding fields are deeper blue with fiery luster beneath. The strike is reasonably sharp on the curls of Liberty and the eagle, although the stars lack their radial lines; this is normal for the issue. Bold on the overdate with the tail of the 5 sharp and clear to the unaided eye with the central curve centered within the loop of the 6 and the flag of the 5 showing below the top of the 6 as well. This is the plate coin from Steve Tompkins' reference for Early United States Quarters 1796 - 1838. An important example for the date or type specialist and worthy of any advanced collection. Population: 4 in 63, 5 finer (MS66 finest). (PCGS 5315)
