    1836 Gobrecht Dollar, Proof 55
    Judd-60, Die Alignment I
    Excellent for Type

    1836 P$1 Name on Base, Judd-60 Original, Pollock-65, R.1, PR55 PCGS. Silver. Plain Edge. No Stars Obverse, Stars Reverse. Die Alignment I (the center of Liberty's head is opposite the D in DOLLAR). The diagonal linear clash mark is just barely visible with magnification above the eagle's wing. It is now believed that both early, non-clashed, and later, clashed, dollars were all struck in the last week of December. This is a magnificent example that displays remarkable depth of reflectivity in the fields. Each side is lightly marked, the only exceptions being a shallow checked-shaped scratch above the 83 in the date and a larger contact mark below the eagle's leg. Much brilliance shows but each side has a light accent of gray-golden toning also. This would be an exceptionally nice type coin. (NGC ID# BLWV, PCGS# 11225)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
