    Choice AU 1834 Bechtler Half Eagle

    (1834-37) C.Bechtler Five-Dollar, 140G. 20C. AU 55 NGC. K-17, R.5. A numismatically significant issue as the date of the enabling legislation, August 1, 1834, is imprinted in the die. This is a pleasing example of this scarcer, high denomination issue. The statutory devices on each side are fully brought up. Minimally abraded with the only detracting elements being a series of three small planchet flakes out of the obverse at 7 o'clock. Listed on page 266 of the 1995 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2B9R, PCGS# 10112)
