MORE ON KOREIN'S COLLECTION GOBRECHT DOLLARS

Saul Teichman writes:
Van Winkle, Gobrecht Dollars With regard to Dr. Korein's collection, it contained the following Gobrecht dollars and the one half dollar splasher the last time I visited him. I do not know if the collection grew beyond what is listed below but the new book is missing 30 pieces he purchased since then.

Splashers - 4

  • Half Dollar J-A1837-2
  • Dollar J-A1836-4, J-A1836-5, J-A1836-8

Gobrecht Dollars - 96

  • J58 2 in alignment IV, 4 in alignment III
  • J59 alignment III
  • J60 60 examples, 26 in alignment I, 12 in alignment II, 5 in alignment III, 17 in alignment IV
  • J61 alignment IV
  • J62 alignment III
  • J63 alignment III
  • J64 alignment III
  • J65 alignment III
  • J84 1 in alignment IV, 6 in alignment III
  • J85 2 in alignment III
  • J87 1 in alignment III
  • J88 1 in alignment III
  • J89 1 in alignment III
  • J104 3 in alignment III, 7 in alignment IV
  • J105 1 in alignment III
  • J108 1 in alignment III

From a completion standpoint, it is missing only the 2 1839 copper dollars J107 and J109 and a latest state restrike J60 in alignment III with die rust in front of Liberty's face from being complete.
