Description:
Mint State C. Bechtler Five Dollar, K-20
(1837-42) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G, With Star MS61 NGC. K-20, R.4. A yellow-gold example with pale lime patina across the open fields. Flashes of luster and an even strike ensure the eye appeal. As expected of the MS61 grade, a few wispy marks are present, some above the 1 in 134. Struck from widely rotated dies, and listed on page 350 of the 2008 Guide Book. As a denomination, Bechtler five dollar pieces are significantly scarcer than Bechtler gold dollars. Bullion customers probably preferred payment in gold dollars, since higher denominations would have been cumbersome in commerce. Census: 10 in 61, 0 finer (7/07). (PCGS# 10097)
