Lot Description
1836 Pattern Gold Dollar. Judd-67, Pollock-70. Rarity-5. Proof-63 Cameo (PCGS). A liberty cap surrounded by a glory of rays or sunburst serves as the&nbsp;sole element of the design on the obverse. The word LIBERTY is inscribed on the band of the cap. The reverse exhibits a coiled palm frond encircling the denomination 1 D., with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border and the date 1836 below. Struck in gold (standard alloy of 90% gold, 10% copper) with a plain edge.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;A lovely specimen with vivid color in a blend of olive-orange and pale-pink shades. An all-brilliant finish is most vibrant when observed with the aid of&nbsp;direct light, but sharply impressed devices are easily seen at all angles. Well contrasted in finish, with only wispy hairlines to preclude a higher numeric grade. Examples of Judd-67 were first struck in early 1836 with U.S. Mint restrikes attributed to the late 1850s/early 1860s. Unique Cameo designation from PCGS!
