Smooth and original surfaces with pleasing accents of pastel yellow and blue. Strong remaining luster for the grade and a high-end XF. A choice flowing hair type coin.
Perfectly original with russet-tinted surfaces and plenty of meat on the central devices. CAC approved for quality.
The 1839 Gobrecht dollar is much scarcer than the 'type coin' 1836 Gobrecht without any premium. One of the 300 pieces struck in 1839, an estimate of 60-75 pieces are expected to exist, with this example being on of the finest remaining. Frosty gold tints with a light orange from 2 to 7 o'clock on the obverse, this piece displays an unusual attractiveness and is not dark as most examples that we come across. Only 2 pieces are graded finest by PCGS.
