Description

Near-Mint A. Bechtler Five (1842-1852)
134G. 21 Carats, Rare K-27 Variety

(1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU58 NGC. K-27, Low R.5. Canary-gold luster brightens the legends of this lovely orange-toned Borderline Uncirculated Bechtler five. The strike is consistent throughout, and no marks are remotely worthy of description. Without the often-seen die scratch between the IN in CAROLINA, which suggests the present Territorial gold coin was struck relatively early for the die pairing. Struck from widely rotated dies. Kagin-27 is one of the later products of the Bechtler mint, made after the 1842 death of Christopher Sr., the family patriarch. His son Augustus continued production of gold coinage until 1852. Listed on page 361 of the 2010 Guide Book. Census: 11 in 58, 2 finer (2/10). (PCGS# 10046)
