Description

    K-10, 67 Grains, 21 Carats C. Bechtler
    Quarter Eagle, Near-Mint

    (1837-42) $2 1/2 C. Bechtler Quarter Eagle, 67G. 21C. AU58 PCGS. K-10, R.5. The two major issuers of private gold coins in the South were Templeton Reid of Georgia and the Bechtler family, which is more often associated with North Carolina. While Templeton Reid's coins failed due to inaccurate assays, the Bechtler coinage found a warm reception. It was struck and circulated even after the opening of U.S. branch mints in Charlotte and Dahlonega. This is a lightly rubbed and radiant yellow-gold example of the C. Bechtler quarter eagle, weight 67 grains of 21 carat gold, minimally marked with planchet voids at the upper obverse. Listed on page 364 of the 2011 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9F, PCGS# 10067)
