    C. Bechtler Dollar, Reversed N, AU50
    Interesting K-4 Variety

    (1837-42) G$1 C. Bechtler Dollar, N Reversed AU50 PCGS. K-4, R.4. The Bechtler family of North Carolina in the 1830s got many things right that the U.S. Mint and later private gold coiners in California and Utah would not sort out for decades. The K-4 Reversed N gold dollar variety is especially popular with collectors due to its quaint handmade character. This nice Almost Uncirculated example shows original "crusty gold" surfaces, mostly yellow-gold with flashes of copper-gold near the rims. The centers are well-struck and about half of the peripheral legend, with the remaining legends somewhat soft. Marks are minimal throughout, and light circulation wear is consistent with the grade level. Listed on page 376 of the 2014 Guide Book. Population: 14 in 50, 59 finer (8/13).
    From The Strawberry Fields Collection. (NGC ID# 2B98, PCGS# 10055)
