(1837-42) C. Bechtler Two and a Half
Near-Mint, 67 Grain, 21 Carat

(1837-42) $2 1/2 C. Bechtler Quarter Eagle, 67G. 21C. AU58 NGC. K-10, R.5. Substantial sun-gold luster illuminates the legends of this near-Mint Bechtler two and a half. The strike is even and there are no detrimental marks. The later die state with a break filling the N in CAROLINA. The family of German immigrant Christian Bechtler was the major Southern private gold coiner during the 1830s and 1840s. Private coiners operated freely prior to a Civil War ban. Certain Bechtler gold dollar issues are fairly common but the varieties of other denominations range from very scarce to very rare. Listed on page 377 of the 2014 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10067)
