Description & Analysis

This overdate variety is believed to have been the first one struck of the 1818-dated quarter dollars. The underlying numeral 5 is shallow and a bit hard to see on worn examples. Fortunately for advanced collectors, a fair number of Mint State coins have survived, though gems are quite rare.

The obverse die of this marriage was subsequently paired with a different reverse to create B-3, but by then the delicate overdate was no longer visible.
