1836 Name on Base Gobrecht Dollar, Judd-60, PR63
    Die Alignment IV, Original Striking

    1836 P$1 Name on Base, Judd-60, Pollock-65, R.1, PR63 PCGS. Silver. Plain Edge. Die Alignment IV (head of Liberty opposite the O in OF after a medal turn). Die State e. The angling die clash mark (that looks like a die scratch) above the eagle's wing is plainly apparent on this piece. The Starry Reverse restrike reverse is apparently struck from a different reverse die than the original die. Restrikes always show die cracks connecting the letters around the peripheral lettering. On this coin there are no die cracks evident, thus indicating it was struck from the original dies, not the restrike dies, as indicated on the insert. It should be noted this coin is housed in a first-generation PCGS holder, and a great deal has been learned (and still has to be learned) about the striking periods of Gobrecht dollars. Specialists should take note that the head of Liberty is opposite the O in OF, not opposite the F in OF. This puts the eagle in a slightly rising position on the reverse. Our assumption is this is diagnostic of all coins from this later state of the uncracked original die.
    The strike details are complete in all areas on this piece: full definition on Liberty's head, complete detailing on the foot, and fully defined breast feathers on the eagle. The fields show remarkably deep mirrored reflectivity, a fact that is abundantly obvious because of the layers of toning on each side. Speckled gray toning in the centers is surrounded at the margins by pale rainbow shadings. The surfaces are lightly hairlined, but this is well concealed by the toning. There are no obvious contact marks on either side. (NGC ID# 26YX, PCGS# 11227)
