Description

(1842-52) A.Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU 55 PCGS. Kagin-27, Breen 7766. Struck from rotated dies. Produced by August Bechtler ca. 1842-1846 and an important companion piece to the half eagles produced at the Charlotte Mint during this era. This example is slightly prooflike and has splashes of reddish-orange color. A rare coin in this grade.
When available, this variety tends to be found in lower grades. Most seen are in the Extremely Fine range with the occasional low-end AU available. The present example is certainly among the finest known and we cannot recall having seen a fully mint state piece, although we would not be surprised if one existed. Listed on page 273 of the 1998 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)

Several people contacted me who felt similarly about the way the auction was handled. At this point in my career I'm much more concerned with the respectful professionalism in all forms when it comes to my life's work. I truly appreciate your efforts in t
