Description

Scarce Near-Mint Bechtler Five Dollar, '20 Distant'

(1834-37) $5 C.Bechtler Five Dollar, 20 Distant AU58 PCGS. K-19, High R.6. A rare variety with the 20 distant from the word CARATS on the lower reverse. It is believed that only ten or so examples of this variety may exist today in all grades. The obverse on this variety was later used to coin the rare proof restrikes. The surfaces are lightly marked with the signs of handling one would expect from two points of circulation with the most obvious abrasions in the center of each side. The surfaces are a light green-golden color with ample luster remaining in the protected areas. An impressive example of this scarce variety. Listed on page 346 of the 2007 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9S, PCGS# 10115)
