Description

(1837-42) C.Bechtler Dollar, N Reversed MS 61 PCGS. Kagin-4, Breen 7761. Struck by Christoph Bechtler ca. 1840-42 and quickly identifiable by the N in ONE being reversed and then corrected. Somewhat prooflike with beautiful old coppery-gold and greenish color. There are some faint hairlines visible on both sides. A very attractive coin.
Early die state with no cracks noted. This is a relatively common variety even in the higher AU grades but it becomes very rare in full Mint State. We feel that there are probably no more than 6 to 8 pieces known in Mint State and most of these barely qualify as such. The present example is almost certainly in the Condition Census. Listed on page 273 of the 1998 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B98, PCGS# 10055)
