Description & Analysis

In a rare event for early half cents, all sources are in agreement on the mintage figure for coins bearing this date.

Two style of date are noted for 1806, the Small 6 (two dies) and the Large 6 (one die). These are combined in four marriages with three reverses, one of which (C-1) is the No Stems die also seen on 1804- and 1805-dated half cents. C-1 and C-4 are both common from old hoards, while C-2 is slightly scarce and C-3 (Small 6 With Stems) is genuinely rare.
