    August Bechtler Gold Dollar, MS63, K-24
    Dazzling Prooflike Fields

    (1842-52) G$1 A. Bechtler Dollar, 27G. 21C., Plain Edge MS63 PCGS. K-24, R.3. The K-24 August Bechtler gold dollar is the most frequently encountered variety of this popular private gold coiner. However, this is an unusual, high-grade example. Perhaps the most unusual aspect is the deep, flashy prooflikeness on each side. The high Uncirculated grade is also unusual, but not as much as the mirroring in the fields. The combination of both results in a coin with undeniable eye appeal and collector interest. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold with scattered patches of red, most likely from improper mixture of the copper alloy. Sharply struck and minimally abraded. Listed on page 365 of the 2012 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B99, PCGS# 10040)
