    A. Bechtler Five Dollar, Choice AU
    Rare K-28, 128 G., 22 C.

    (1837-1842) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 128 G. 22 C. AU55 PCGS. K-28, R.6. Although four die marriages are known for 128 G. Bechtler fives, three were struck by Christopher, and only one by his son August. The latter variety is virtually unobtainable in Mint State, with only a single MS61 PCGS example certified as such by either leading service. The present briefly circulated piece displays olive-green luster throughout the legends. The open fields are honey-gold. A narrow cluster of marks southeast of the large 5 provides the sole consequential contact. Listed on page 395 of the 2019 Guide Book. Population: 1 in 55, 1 finer (3/19).
    From The Uptown Collection of Bechtler Territorial Gold. (NGC ID# 2B9Z, PCGS# 10043)
