    1836 Pattern Gold Dollar in Copper
    Judd-70, PR66 Brown

    1836 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-70, Pollock-73, Low R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse shows a glory of rays surrounding a cap inscribed LIBERTY. On the reverse a palm branch encircles the denomination 1 D., with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the 1836 date below. Struck in copper with a plain edge. These interesting and beautiful patterns are frequently encountered in gold, and rarely seen in other compositions. Most of the gold examples are originals, alloyed with copper and struck in 1836. Some others, alloyed with silver, were struck in 1844 according to the late David Akers, and additional gold examples along with off-metal pieces in silver, copper-nickel, and copper were struck about 1859, or perhaps later, as one gold example is known struck over an 1859 gold dollar. A five-piece collection of the different compositions from the three striking periods would present quite a challenge and would make a fascinating exhibit. This stunning Premium Gem displays vivid electric-blue toning over deeply mirrored fields with iridescent splashes primarily on the reverse. The surfaces are flawless.
    Ex: Superior (6/2002), lot 4694.
