David Akers (1975/88): The data shows that this date is tied with the 1841 as the third rarest date in the entire quarter eagle series. The overdate is not nearly as distinct as it is on the 1806/4 (which one would naturally expect from the shape of the numerals), but the 1806/5 is easily distinguished from the 1806/4 by its different obverse star arrangement. Although a great rarity, the 1806/5 is largely unappreciated, much like the 1804 quarter eagle with 13 Star Reverse. The finest specimen (AU) I have seen resides in a Connecticut collection, but at least one and perhaps two strictly mint state specimens are reported to exist.
