Near-Mint C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G, With Star, K-20

(1837-42) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G, With Star AU58 NGC. K-20, R.4. Donald Kagin's variety 20 is the single most plentiful Christopher Bechtler five dollar piece produced from 1831 to 1842, an excellent opportunity for the casual collector to obtain an example of this historically important Territorial gold coinage. The variety is attributed to the sixth coinage series of Bechtler gold pieces and was probably coined circa 1839 or 1840. This light yellow gold specimen has splashes of orange toning around the devices, providing excellent eye appeal. The strike is bold, despite the fairly primitive die engraving. Listed on page 350 of the 2008 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9T, PCGS# 10097)
