    Christopher Bechtler Gold Dollar, AU55
    Kagin-1, 30G.
    Third Series (Circa 1831-34)

    (1831-34) G$1 C. Bechtler Dollar, 30G. AU55 NGC. K-1, R.4. Christopher Bechtler and his family operated a private mint in North Carolina in the 1830s and 1840s, producing gold coins for the local economy, all minted from locally mined gold. For many years those coins were more widely accepted than federal issues struck in Philadelphia, or at the branch mints in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Dahlonega, Georgia.
    All of the Bechtler coins, such as this 30 Grain piece, are highly popular with collectors today. This Choice AU specimen has light yellow surfaces with splashes of deeper yellow and rose toning near the borders. Trivial surface marks are consistent with the grade and the history of these wonderful coins. Listed on page 363 of the 2012 Guide Book.
    From The Jeepy-Louise Collection. (NGC ID# 2B94, PCGS# 10064)
