    Historic 1836 Gold Dollar Pattern, Judd-67, PR63
    Modeled After Contemporary Mexican Issues

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5, PR63 NGC. The obverse features a Liberty cap surrounded by rays of glory, similar in design to certain contemporary Mexican issues. The reverse features the denomination 1 D. within a coiled palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. Christian Gobrecht is credited with both designs. Struck in gold with a plain edge. Judd-67 has considerable historical importance, as it is the first Federal gold pattern as well as the first gold dollar issue. This design was also restruck in the late 1850s, but this piece shows no trace of an undertype or medallic alignment, so we conclude it is an original striking from 1836. Fully struck and deeply mirrored, the only mentionable marks are a couple of shallow scratches around the denomination on the reverse.
