R.6 C. Bechtler (1837-42) Quarter Eagle, K-11
MS61, Tied for Finest Certified at PCGS

(1837-42) $2 1/2 C. Bechtler Quarter Eagle, 64G. 22C. MS61 PCGS. K-11, R.6. From the sixth series of Bechtler quarter eagles, issued by Christopher Bechtler in the 1837-42 timeframe. The K-11 and K-12 sixth series pieces all read GEORGIA GOLD (inverted V's for the A's) on one side, along with 64.G / 22 / CARATS. The other side has 2.50 in the center, with BECHTLER / RUTHERF around the rim. On the K-11 variety the 22 is uneven; it is even on the K-12. Both are extremely rare, with the K-12 perhaps a hair more so.
The present piece is nonetheless high in the Condition Census of the finest known K-11s. The heavy planchet striations give the coin a semireflective appearance, further enhanced by the reddish-gold and lilac palette sprinkled over both sides. The usual die crack appears from the rim at 12 o'clock to the T in BECHTLER. Listed on page 358 of the 2009 Guide Book. Population (K-11): 3 in 61, 0 finer (1/09). PCGS has certified one K-12 in MS62, the only K-11 or K-12 finer. NGC has certified three each of the K-11 in MS61 and MS62. (NGC ID# 2B9G, PCGS# 10073)
