    1836 Gold Dollar Pattern in Gilt Copper
    Judd-70, PR64
    Early 'Glory of Rays' Design

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-70 Gilt, Pollock-73, Low R.7, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays a Liberty cap surrounded by a glory of rays with LIBERTY on the band, a motif reminiscent of the various Mexican silver coins of one to eight reales and fractions thereof that appeared in 1824. The reverse shows 1 and D. on two lines enclosed by a graceful palm frond, with the date below and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the rim. Struck in copper with a plain edge, and here gilt. The C in AMERICA on the Judd-67 to -71 gold dollar patterns was first punched in error into the reverse die with its opening toward the rim, then corrected, but an extra protruding serif and the closed letter still proclaim the blunder. This example shows compelling antique-gold patina and excellent eye appeal, despite a few faint, small color smudges on the reverse. Population: 2 in 64, 0 finer (8/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 11275)
