    1836, Issue of March 1837, Gobrecht Dollar, PR61 NGC

    1836 PS$1 Name on Base, Judd-60 Restrike, Pollock-65, R.5, PR61 NGC. Die Alignment IV. Plain Edge. Silver. Struck in March 1837, these pieces began in Die Alignment II but the reverse die was apparently not secure. As the die slowly rotated, coins were struck in orientations from Die Alignment II to IV, which is to say with the eagle flying "onward and upward" as with the December 1836 coins to the eagle flying level, as with this piece. The mintage of 1837 coins (dated 1836) was 600 pieces, approximately 400 of which are believed to have been produced with Die Alignment IV. However, very few are known today.
    Unlike many Gobrecht dollars, this piece is essentially untoned. The hazy, gray-brilliant surfaces show numerous small abrasions, but the only ones that are worthy of mention are a cluster in the field above the rock and to the left of Liberty's arm. Fully struck with complete hair and foot definition. A curious feature we have never noticed before on these coins is there is a trace of a previously punched 8 southeast of the dominant 8 in the date.(#11227) (NGC ID# 26YX, PCGS# 11227)
