Ron Guth:

In 1836, employees in the U.S. Mint at Philadephia focused on production of Half Dollars. In fact, of all the denominations produced in 1836, the Quarter Dollar has the smallest mintage (we're ignoring the Reeded Edge Half Dollars because they are...Half Dollars). Five different die varieties comprise the entire mintage of 472,000 Quarter Dollars. Three of the five varieties are common, one is very scarce, and the fifth (B-5) is so rare that it was not discovered until 1988 and, since then, very few examples have shown up.

Approximately three dozen Mint State 1836 Quarter Dollars have been identified over the years. Most are average Uncirculated (MS62 to MS63), with just a few that are MS64 or better. Gems are exceedingly rare.
