    1859 PG$1 Gold Dollar Judd-256, Pollock-7010, R.6, PR 60 Brown, Bent. The obverse is similar to that used on the regular issue 1859 gold dollar, but the letters are slightly taller. The reverse is also similar to the regular issue, but the letters in DOLLAR are taller. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. There is considerable debate surrounding the origin of this pattern. Pollock notes that the dies are similar to those created by Anthony Paquet for the 1858 pattern gold dollar (Judd-224 and 225), but the workmanship is cruder in execution. As such, some scholars believe that this pattern was produced outside the U.S. Mint for sale to collectors. This is a glossy, olive-copper example with a few carbon spots on both sides. The bend is not overly distracting.
