Lustrous and well struck for this somewhat primitive issue, the obverse with its simple designs of A. BECHTLER. with DOL. below and stars as stops, and a large central 1 within the letters. Open fields and a solid rim form the balance of that side. The reverse with CAROLINA GOLD in a nearly complete circle, within which is 27 G. and 21 C. below. Smooth fields, bright yellow-gold with a touch of green. A few shallow nicks and marks as expected in the soft gold surfaces.
