Description & Analysis

Quarter dollar production enjoyed accelerated during 1806, and this is perhaps the most commonly seen date of its type. The mintage consists of four deliveries made from May 26 through July 7, mimicking the spring-summer coinage of 1805.

Six obverse dies were paired in various combinations with eight reverse dies to create the 10 marriages known for this date. The overdate is Browning variety 1 (see following entry). Of the remaining marriages, B-2, -3 and -9 are common. B-4 through B-7, as well as B-10, are scarce, while B-8 is rare.

1806 quarter dollars are often selected by collectors to represent the Draped Bust/Heraldic Eagle type of 1804-07. Mint State examples are scarce but not truly rare. Nice circulated examples are plentiful, but collectors are advised to avoid improperly cleaned or damaged pieces.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
