Description & Analysis

When it was anticipated that silver dollar coinage would resume after a suspension of more than 30 years Christian Gobrecht was tasked with creating dies from designs by Thomas Sully (obverse) and Titian Peale (reverse). Various combinations of dies, metals and die orientations are known for this group of coins, most of which were coined as either patterns or pieces de caprice for the delight of and sale to collectors. All feature plain edges, except for the very rare, reeded edge Judd-61 variety.

Judd-58 was coined in the 1837 alloy of .900 silver and .100 copper on planchets of the 1837 standard weighing 412.5 grains. This identifies it as being struck later than 1836, mostly likely during the late 1850s when the U. S. Mint was at its most accommodating to collectors. This first obverse die reads C. GOBRECHT F. in raised letters below Liberty's base, that being the engraver's signature. On the reverse is an eagle in flight, surrounded by 26 stars representing the number of states in 1836 (Number 26, Michigan, actually was admitted on January 26, 1837). The 13 larger stars of the 26 are for the original colonies. The eagle flies level in disregard of the artist's intention, and this is evident by the legend stops not being on a horizontal plain. The Judd book rates this variety as Low R-6, suggesting that about 25-30 pieces are known.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
