We have measured Hall resistance and magnetic torque in the field-induced spin-density-wave (FISDW) phase of deuterated (TMTSF)2ClO4 for various cooling rates through the anion ordering temperature. The Hall resistance with the magnetic field parallel to c* is not sensitive to cooling rate above 16T. On the other hand, the Hall resistance between 9 and 14 T rapidly and continuously decreases with increasing cooling rate. This result means that the Hall resistance in the semimetallic SDW phase between 9 and 14 T is not quantized in the intermediate cooled states. A new phase transition from the non-quantized phase to the quantized (n = 1) Hall phase exists with hysteresis of the Hall resistance. Moreover, the new phase boundary is shifted towards a lower field when the cooling rate is increased. We have also found that the magnetic torque in the non-quantized phase rapidly decreases with increasing cooling rate. A possible ground state of non-quantized and Hall phase of the FISDW phase of (TMTSF)2ClO4 is discussed from the viewpoint of the peculiar SDW nesting vector.
