    1836 Cap and Rays Gold Dollar Pattern
    Judd-67, Dazzling PR64

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5, PR64 NGC. CAC. The obverse is modeled after the Cap and Rays design seen on contemporary Mexican coins. The reverse has a beautifully engraved palm frond encircling the inner denomination 1/D., outside the palm frond is UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in gold with a plain edge. Coin alignment with no die cracking, indicating this is an original strike. These intriguing pieces are one of the few gold patterns that are relatively affordable and occasionally available. The scope of the patterns offered in this auction gives the collector an unprecedented opportunity to select from several examples. This particular piece is bright yellow-gold and the fields display deep, mirrorlike reflectivity. The devices are also noticeably frosted, but apparently not enough to warrant such a designation by NGC. The only identifying "flaw" is a small alloy spot on the obverse near the 11 o'clock position. (NGC ID# 26VC, PCGS# 11260)
