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

    (1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. MS61 NGC. No Star, K-27, Low R.5. Of the four August Bechtler five dollar issues that Don Kagin lists for the time period of roughly 1842-1852, the K-27 is the only readily accessible type. (The K-20, R.4 with the star in the center, is from the 1837-1842 timeframe.) The remaining three No Star five issues, K-28 (128G.), K-29 (141G.) through K-30 (141G., proof restrike with die break), are each R.6 or higher.
    This greenish-gold example displays vibrant mint luster with some light field chatter and a few hair-thin scrapes that account for the grade, although they scarcely detract from the appeal. This is the single finest certified of this variety at either NGC or PCGS, as the finest at the latter service is a sole AU58. Listed on page 365 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 1 in 61, 0 finer (7/10). (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
