Description

1836 Cap and Rays Gold Dollar
Judd-67, PR65 Cameo
Coin-Turn Original Striking

1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67 Original, Pollock-70, R.5, PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC.
Design. The design was engraved by Christian Gobrecht and the obverse was Mexican influenced with a Liberty cap surrounded by rays of glory. The reverse features the denomination 1 D. within a coiled palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. Struck in gold with a 10% copper alloy with a plain edge.

Commentary. Judd-67 is the first gold dollar pattern struck in anticipation of a future coinage. It is also one of the few gold patterns, actually struck in gold that can be obtained at a somewhat reasonable price. Both originals and restrikes exist for Judd-67, with one overstruck example known on an 1859 gold dollar as its host. That piece is clearly visible on the USPatterns.com website. In general original strikes have a coin turn while restrikes have a medallic turn. However, there are exceptions, with some restrikes showing a coin turn. This design was restruck in 1844 with a 10% silver alloy, and it was also struck in silver, copper, and oroide or copper-nickel.

Physical Description. This coin-turn piece is believed to be from the original striking period. The fields show remarkable depth of reflectivity on each side with noticeably frosted devices. Close examination reveals only the slightest contact marks, the only one distinctive enough to use as a pedigree identifier is a slight scuff located within the D in the denomination. This example is tied with one other piece at the PR65 Cameo level, and that coin is a PR65+ (2/13).

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
