1836 Gobrecht $1 Original, Judd-60, Pollock-65, R.1, Proof 55 PCGS
Silver, Plain Edge, Die Alignment IV, (medal turn with the eagle flying level, Liberty's head is opposite the letters OF). Deep golden gray with lilac overtones. Lightly rubbed on the highest points but not marked to any extent, with none of the tiny marks present visible to the unaided eye. One of 1,000 Gobrecht dollars reportedly made for circulation purposes; the worn state of many known Gobrecht dollars points directly to having been used in circulation, and not mishandling. Pattern or regular issue, take your choice, the 1836 Gobrecht dollar has handily fit into both categories for many years now. Indeed, many are present in the early dollar collections that include at least one of Christian Gobrecht's beautiful design types, chiefly Judd-60 as offered here. A wonderful opportunity to obtain a classic United States scarcity in a lovely, slightly circulated condition. This medal turn reverse alignment is considerably scarcer than the usually seen Die Alignment I examples of this date. (PCGS 11226)
