1836 Gobrecht Silver Dollar. Name on Base. Judd-60 Original, Pollock-65. Rarity-1. Dannreuther Reverse Die State b. Silver. Plain Edge. Die Alignment I. Proof-25 (PCGS).This pleasing example is boldly toned in charcoal and steel gray over surfaces that retain ample boldness of detail to all devices. We also note sharper definition to the recesses of Libertys gown, the obverse shield, and much of the eagles plumage on the reverse. A touch of glossiness to the texture is noted for accuracy, as are numerous tiny contact marks from time spent in commercial channels. Desirable mid grade quality for this historic and scarce issue, the first silver dollar that the Mint issued for circulation since the earliest years of the 19th century, and the first in the brief and challenging Gobrecht series of 1836 to 1839.
