Magnetoresistance and Hall resistance measurements have been carried out in the FISDW phase of deuterated (TMTSF) 2C1O 4 for various cooling rates through the anion ordering temperature. The Hall resistance in the intermediate cooled state, observed a very stable quantum Hall state above 9.0 T for slowly cooled, shows a step-like change from the phase between 10 and 17 T to the phase between 20 and 25 T with hysteresis between 14 and 21 T. This result suggests that there is a new phase transition around 15 T in deuterated (TMTSF) 4ClO 4. A possible ground state of the FISDW phase of (TMTSF) 2C1O 4 for various cooling rates is discussed from the viewpoint of the peculiar SDW nesting vector stabilized by the dimerized gap due to anion ordering.
