Mintage...Unknown. These pieces are extremely rare. Many variants of Gobrecht dollars were struck beginning in 1836, continuing in 1837, 1838, and 1839, picking up again in the late 1850s and continuing through the 1870s. Of these many issues the only date that is believed to actually have been coined as a pattern is the 1838. Each side displays variegated shadings of rose, blue, golden, and brown, lighter in the center of the obverse and deeper around the margin. The strike is full. This includes complete definition on the foot of Liberty, the eagle's breast feathers, and the right-side stars on the obverse.
