Description:
128 Grains, 22 Carats C. Bechtler
Five Dollar, K-23, AU58
(1837-42) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 128G. 22C. AU58 NGC. K-23, R.6. The very rare C. Bechtler five dollar struck to a stated 128 grains - 22 carats standard. This near-Mint example, if it ever circulated, did so only briefly. The sun-yellow surfaces remain immensely lustrous, and the protected areas around the devices exhibit considerable reflectivity. Only minor evidence of friction precludes a finer designation, and neither side shows any individually significant abrasions. Softly struck with ill-defined obverse rims, though the reverse rims are uneven but complete. Listed on page 361 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10103)
