    Christopher Bechtler Five Dollar, K-19
    RUTHERF. Variant, 20 Distant, AU Details

    (1834-37) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 20 Distant, RUTHERF -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. K-19, High R.6. The five dollar issues of Christopher Bechtler provide interesting variety study for the territorial specialist. Variants include RUTHERFORD COUNTY spelled out, AT RUTHERFORD, and RUTHERF. as seen here, and various GEORGIA GOLD varieties. Among the two RUTHERF. varieties, this one has 20 positioned further away from CARATS. This example displays brightness from an unfortunate cleaning. Otherwise, the surfaces are lightly marked except for a scratch HER in RUTHERF. and a couple of larger marks around the date. Light reddish patina surrounds the devices. Listed on page 374 of the 2013 Guide Book.
