    1836 Gobrecht-Designed Gold Dollar
    Judd-67, PR65

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-67, Pollock-70, R.5 PR65 PCGS. CAC. The obverse features a Liberty cap surrounded by numerous glory rays, 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 alloy 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. Originals are likely quite rare, although a number were restruck in the 1860s, one of which was struck over an 1859 gold dollar. This bright yellow-gold Gem has a needle-sharp strike and highly reflective fields, while the reverse has bold mint-made striations.
    Ex: November Signature (Heritage, 11/2003), lot 11001; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 6413. (NGC ID# 26VC, PCGS# 11260)
