    1836 Copper Gobrecht Dollar
    PR63 Red and Brown

    Judd-59 Restrike, Name Below Base
    Only Two Examples Privately Held

    1836 P$1 Name Below Base, Judd-59 Restrike, Pollock-62, R.8, PR63 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Copper. Plain Edge. Die Alignment III (head opposite the O in ONE after a coin turn). The reverse shows a heavy crack through NITED STATES O and another connecting the bottom of OLLA. Die State A, as are all three of the known examples. According to the collaborative work of John Dannreuther, Craig Sholley, and Saul Teichman, "Auction records and emission sequence of Cabinet Coin Restrikes strongly indicate that the copper and mule Cabinet Coins were struck just prior to Linderman leaving office." Henry Linderman's term as Mint Director ended in April 1869, making it possible to closely state when this (and the other two known copper pieces) were produced. The roster of known examples is:

    1. Scott Collection (Bowers and Merena, 6/1975), lot 1260; C. Smith of San Clemente, California; Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 7/2002), lot 442, which brought $62,100; Dr. Julius Korein; ANS.
    2. Haseltine (2/1877), lot 557, where it brought $20.50; probably ex: Scott (12/1878), lot 609; Parmelee Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 6/1890), lot 26; Woodside Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 4/1892), lot 16; 1914 ANS Exhibition; William Woodin; Waldo Newcomer; Palace Collection/Farouk (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1716; Whitney P. Sunderland Collection (Bowers and Merena, 3/1994), lot 1454; Stack's (7/2008), lot 4154, unsold; Stack's (7/2009), lot 808, where it brought $201,250; the current specimen.
    3. Probably ex: E.M. Wharton Collection (Stack's, 10/1945), lot 1627, where it realized $350; probably ex: Kagin's Sale # 298 (9/1972), lot 46.



    The fields are brightly reflective beneath the mottled sea-green and rose toning. Fully struck, as one would expect from a proof minted in this period. This is an exceptionally rare opportunity for either the Gobrecht specialist or pattern collector to acquire this seldom-offered copper Gobrecht dollar.
