Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The overdate is very distinct, but even without looking at the date, the 1806/4 can be easily and quickly distinguished from the 1806/5 by the arrangement of the obverse stars. On this variety, the stars are arranged 8 to the left and 5 to the right, while on the 1806/5, they are arranged 7 to the left and 6 to the right. The 1806/4 is almost always weakly struck in the centers of both the obverse and reverse, but such weak striking is characteristic of all dates of this type. Strictly mint state examples are exceedingly rare and I have never personally examined one, although a few are reported to exist.
