Description

Lightly Toned 1839 Original Gobrecht Dollar
Judd-104, PR58

1839 P$1 Name Removed, Judd-104 Original, Pollock-116, R.3 PR58 PCGS. Silver. Reeded Edge. Die Alignment IV, original issue of 1839 (the head of Liberty is opposite the F in OF). The original coins from 1839 are distinguished by a lack of die cracks that are seen on around the reverse lettering on the later restrikes. Even though struck as proofs, most 1839 Original dollars are found in circulated grades. This is a pleasing example that approaches mint condition with just a touch of friction over the high points. Much flashy brilliance shines through the light gray-rose toning that is lightly draped over both obverse and reverse. Magnification shows a number of tiny, grade-consistent marks, but the only one worthy of individual mention is a small planchet flaw in the lower reverse field below the eagle's claw.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection. (NGC ID# BLY5, PCGS# 11444)
