A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C., AU53
(1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU53 PCGS.
K-27, Low R.5. CAROLINA GOLD, No Star in Center, RUTHERFORD.
The Kagin-27 A. Bechtler half eagle was struck in 134 grains of
21-carat gold. While rare, the Kagin-27 is the only A. Bechtler
half eagle that is occasionally available. The remaining three A.
Bechtler half eagle issues are each R.6 or higher. This AU53 PCGS
example of the K-27 shows good eye appeal on deep orange-yellow
surfaces that blend into deeper reddish-orange patina around the
edges of the lettering. Like several others in this marvelous
Bechtler consignment, this coin is certified in an early blue-label
PCGS holder (PCGS 6, November-December 1998 only) with bar code on
the reverse. PCGS has seen six submissions in this grade with four
AU55 and one AU58 finer; none are known in Mint State at PCGS
(3/14). Listed on page 378 of the 2014 Guide Book.
