The 1838 Gobrecht dollar obverse combined with the 1836 reverse. These are fantasy pieces struck with plain edge for collectors using die alignment III sometime in the late 1860s to mid 1870s along with the unique copper example of J89/P99 For additional information on this and all copper Gobrecht dollars, click here.

The reverse, used only for restriking, has various die markers which are noted in the illustration below.

Apparently the following 3 are known:

1) Brand (see comment below), Hawn-Stacks 10/93?, B/M 8/95, Stacks 5/03, Dr. Korein, ANS - NGC64, illustrated above courtesy of Stacks

2) Brand (see comment below), Lohr, Miles-Stacks 4/69, Stacks 9/78, StacksBowers 3/17 - PCGS64

3) Newcomer, Col Green, Boyd (B.G. Johnson 4/29/43 invoice), Curtis-Kosoff 2/50, Farouk, H. Schulman, Ostheimer-Merkin 9/68, Share collection, Louis M. Ricciardi, Simpson collection - PCGS64 with rim mark under O in Dollar as illustrated below courtesy of PCGS.

The first 2 are ex Granberg-Brand (journal id #92341) and/or W.W.C. Wilson-Brand (journal id #90915). We cannot identify which coin is which today.

The reeded edge listings in Judd and/or Pollock in both silver P97 and copper J90/P100 are unconfirmed and doubtful.
