Description:
PCGS (1834-37) C. Bechtler Five-Dollar, 20 Distant AU 55. K-19, High R.6. Curiously, Bechtler territorial gold was the only coinage in the nation to make mention of the Congressional act that changed the weight of gold coins in 1834. It did so in the most obvious way, by plainly stamping the date AUGUST 1. 1834. on the obverse of each half eagle, the date when the change took effect. There are only the slightest marks on each side, none that deserve individual mention, and the fields are deeply toned a rich reddish color with faint accents of blue at the margins. An exceptionally pleasing example of this very scarce Bechtler five-dollar. Listed on page 261 of the 1994 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10115)
