Original Select Proof Gobrecht Dollar, Proof 63 NGC

1836 PS$1 Name on Base, J-60 Restrike, Pollock-65, R.5, PR63 NGC. Die Alignment I. With C GOBRECHT F displayed prominently on the base of the rock and the eagle flying upward and onward in a field of twenty six stars, this is one of the original Gobrecht dollars delivered on December 31, 1836. This coin was struck with a plain edge and coin orientation. Many of the 1,000 examples of this variety were released into circulation by the Bank of the United States, while still others were distributed to Philadelphia notables directly from the Mint. In both cases, several coins were set aside as novelty items. This coin is deeply toned in charcoal shades that lighten somewhat in a few isolated areas over the obverse and reverse. The strike is typically bold, but the surfaces show a few scattered contact marks and hairlines that account for the grade. A scarce issue that is always in demand. (#11227) (NGC ID# 26YX, PCGS# 11227)
