Description

    Lovely (1842-52) A. Bechtler Five
    134G, K-27, AU53

    (1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU53 NGC. CAC. K-27, Low R.5. Rich and natural green-gold surfaces exhibit considerable mint luster and modest marks that are entirely in line with the grade. The Bechtler gold coins of North Carolina and Georgia provided the local South with a convenient medium of circulating currency. Of course there is no doubt that the residents in the area much preferred to deal with the Bechtlers, who were local, then to run the risk of long distance transactions with Philadelphia. Listed on page 359 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)
