Description

    Mint State A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C., K-27
    Second Finest Certified

    (1837-42) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. MS60 NGC. K-27, Low R.5. The reverse is rotated ninety degrees from the obverse, as usual. Die breaks extend through LIN in CAROLINA. This green-gold five dollar piece displays prooflike fields and unusually crisp striking detail on all of the design elements. The luster is well above average for this private Southern mint. Faint hairlines and a few wispy contact marks are noted on each side. This is the second finest-known example at NGC, and one of only two certified in Mint State at either of the major services (3/09). Listed on page 359 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)
