Description:
C. Bechtler Gold Dollar, K-4, AU58
'N Reversed' Blundered Die
(1837-42) G$1 C. Bechtler Dollar, N Reversed AU58 NGC. K-4, R.4. A portion of some other letter was first entered, then the subsequent N was entered in the correct position, but backward. To some the first letter looks like a V, or perhaps it is part of an N. Whatever the case, clearly the die engraver was having a bad day on these Territorial pieces, which possess a primitive charm, even with flawless dies. This yellow-gold piece, one of the several 28G varieties, is quite close to Uncirculated, with a few light scrapes that account for the grade but much eye appeal. Listed on page 364 of the 2012 Guide Book. Census: 16 in 58, 25 finer (4/11). (PCGS# 10055)
