Description

Finest-Graded (1842-52) A. Bechtler
Five Dollar Gold
K-27, MS60

(1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. MS60 NGC. K-27, Low R.5. No Star below 134.G. The reverse is rotated ninety degrees from the obverse, as usual. Die breaks extend through LIN in CAROLINA. This green-gold five dollar piece displays prooflike fields and unusually crisp striking detail on all of the design elements. The luster is well above average for this private Southern mint. Faint hairlines and a few wispy contact marks are noted on each side. This is the single finest-known example at NGC, and the only one certified in Mint State at either of the major services, as of (11/07). Listed on page 350 of the 2008 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)
