    Rare A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C., XF40

    (1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. XF40 PCGS. K-27, Low R.5. The Bechtler family provided a much-needed local coinage for the gold mined in the Piedmont region of Georgia and North Carolina, gold that supplied most of the nation's supply until the California strikes of 1848. The Bechtlers' three denominations were well accepted by the local populace and circulated widely.
    This piece shows only light circulation over the antique-gold surfaces, and there are no obvious contact marks. A rare and problem-free example of this historic local coinage. Certified in a green-label holder, listed on page 359 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9Y, PCGS# 10046)
