Lot 1260
1796 Browning-2, Rarity 3. PCGS graded AU-55 PQ. CAC Approved. Lovely mottled golden-russet and lilac highlights dance together on the surfaces of this partially lustrous specimen. Liberty's curls are fully defined and show just touches of light wear, while the eagle's wing feathers on the reverse are complete. Even a few details from the eagle's eye are visible. Close inspection with a loupe reveals only the most minor surface defects, none of which detract from the substantial eye appeal. As America's first quarter and the only year for which the Small Eagle reverse is seen on this denomination, this is a popular type coin in all grades, especially so at this high level of preservation. Pop 18; 53 finer (PCGS # 5310) .
Estimated Value $50,000 - 60,000.
Recently discovered in Europe.

1805 Browning 3, Rarity 1. PCGS graded EF-45 PQ. CAC Approved. Attractive light steel-blue toning overlays each side.

No surface issues are reported aside from the usual light ticks common to the assigned grade. Scarce and desirable at XF-45 grade level. Pop 18; 76 finer (PCGS # 38925) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.

Lot 1264
1806, 6 over 5. Browning-1, Rarity 2. PCGS graded VF-35. CAC Approved. As might be expected, only one die pairing was used to coin the overdate die variety of the 1806 quarter, Browning-1. The 5 underdigit is bold and readily evident under the 6 without the aid of magnification. An appealing mid-grade survivor, both sides exhibit moderate steel-lilac and blue-green toning with lighter design highpoints. Good definition for the grade (PCGS # 5315) .
Estimated Value $2,400 - 2,500.
