6 over 4, Stars 8 Left, 5 Right

1806 Quarter Eagle - There are two overdates for 1806 Quarter Eagle, one over a 4 and the other over a 5 - 1806/4 Quarter Eagle and 1806/5 Quarter Eagle, the latter being considerably scarcer.

The 1806/4 Quarter Eagle is very easy to identify by both the date and the arrangement of the obverse stars. They are arranged eight to the left and five to the right on this variety. This issue is almost always struck with weak centers.

The 1806/5 Quarter Eagle is the third rarest in the series. The overdate is not as easy to see as on the 1806/4 Quarter Eagle variety because of the shapes of the numerals; however, it is easy to distinguish because of the arrangement of the stars on the obverse. They are in a seven to the left and six to the right pattern.
