Undated (1842-1852) August Bechtler $1 Gold. K-24. Rarity-3. 27.G., 21.C. Plain Edge. MS-62 (NGC). CAC. Lustrous and attractive for this scarce issue, as most seen today show extensive evidence of circulation. Note the reflectivity in the fields and handsome copper-gold hues. Examination finds tiny raised lumps in the fields as the dies were apparently rusted which caused this effect on the struck coins. One of the finer examples seen from this prolific era and worthy of an advanced collection.
