The reverse on this 1806 B-5 Draped Bust Quarter was used in creating two die marriages, 1806 B-5 and B-6. Rea Die State P for the 1806 B-6 marriage is listed in Early Quarter Dollars of the United State Miint as being struck before 1806 B-5, noting a die crack through NITED and top of ST in the earliest die state seen by the authors. At first I couldn't really see these die cracks, but parts of it are there (seen under a microscope). R-4+ as a die marriage.
This coin was purchased at the PCGS Trade and Grade show in Philadelphia and came from a European Collection (London) formed in the 1940s and 1950s, with the majority of the coins being raw and stored in 2X2 envelopes. It is toned a nice medium gray and gold on both sides, with above average surfaces for the grade.
