Description

Scarce (1842-52) A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C., AU50

(1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU50 PCGS. CAC. K-27, Low. R.5. Reeded edge. Similar to K-26. The dies are rotated clockwise by approximately eighty degrees. This type was produced by Augustus Bechtler, sometime after his father Christopher's death in 1842. This example is typically well struck, as the Bechtlers generally produced coinage of a high quality, considering that they were operators of a tiny, private mint in rural North Carolina. A couple of minor abrasions are noted near the center of the obverse, and the remaining surfaces show some wispy hairlines and scattered, smaller marks. An attractive AU example of this scarce Territorial gold variety. Listed on page 359 of the 2009 Guide Book. Population: 13 in 50, 12 finer (6/08). (PCGS# 10046)
