Ron Guth: Judd-67 is a pattern for a true gold dollar, a denomination that was not a part of America's coinage system until 1849.  Most likely, this experiment took place because of competition from the Bechtler family in the Southeast, which produced its own, home-grown Gold Dollars.  No record exists of the mintage of this pattern but it must have been quite low because of the cost of the planchets.  Indirectly, we suspect a low mintage because we know that sufficient demand existed around 1860 to justify restrikes.  One restrike example is known with remnants of the word DOLLAR and 1859 near the center of the reverse, providing a close approximation of the time period when restriking took place.  David Akers noted that it is impossible to tell the originals from the restikes, but it may be possible to make that determination based on weight or alloy measurements.  Conventional wisdom speculates that approximately 30-40 examples exist of both the originals and restrikes, though that range may be too high based on auction appearances, where repeat appearances occur on a regular basis.
