    Elusive Mint State C. Bechtler
    Five Dollar, K-20, 134G, With Star

    (1837-42) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G, With Star MS61 NGC. K-20, R.4. This Mint State Bechtler five dollar is a yellow-gold example with pale lime patina across the open fields. Flashes of luster around the protected device outlines and an even strike ensure the eye appeal. As expected of the MS61 grade, a few wispy marks are present, some above the 1 in 134. This piece is struck from widely rotated dies, about 135 degrees. Bechtler five dollar pieces are significantly scarcer than Bechtler gold dollars. Bullion customers probably preferred payment in gold dollars, since higher denominations would have been cumbersome in commerce. Listed on page 365 of the 2012 Guide Book. NGC has seen only 11 submissions in MS61, with one MS63 finer (3/12).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 4148. (NGC ID# 2B9T, PCGS# 10097)
