    Richly Toned 1836 Gobrecht Dollar Restrike, PR63

    1836 PS$1 Name on Base, Judd-60 Restrike, Pollock-65, R.1, PR63 NGC. Die Alignment IV. Plain Edge. Silver. All 1836 dated Gobrecht dollars struck with a medallic alignment are related, and are part of the 1837 issue. These coins range from Die Alignments II through IV. According to this recent research, the 1837 mintage started out as Die Alignment II (medal turn with the eagle flying onward and upward); however, because of an accidental rotation of one of the two dies during the minting process, an entire series of Gobrecht dollars were made with different reverse die orientations. Die Alignment II is the initial orientation and Die Alignment IV the final configuration. Of the 600 coins reported for March 1837, approximately 400 are believed to have been produced with Die Alignment IV. Of these 400 coins, only a small number are know to exist today. This piece has deep blue, gray, and golden toning over each side with bright underlying reflectivity in the fields. An attractive example of this popular Gobrecht issue.(#11227) (NGC ID# 26YX, PCGS# 11227)
