The German immigrant Christopher Bechtler, along with his son, August, and his nephew, Christopher, gained the trust of the citizens of North Carolina and Georgia, and produced a series of gold coins from locally mined gold, struck from 1831 until about 1852. Even after the U.S. Mint opened branched in Charlotte and Dahlonega, the Bechtler family maintained their business. While lightly cleaned, this rich green-gold piece has traces of peripheral rose toning. Listed on page 399 of the 2020 Guide Book.
