Lot Description
(1837-42) G$1 C. Bechtler Dollar, N Reversed AU55 NGC. K-4, R.4. The well-known die engraving blunder with a deeply entered and retrograde N in ONE. Curiously, it is punched over what appears to be a normal N. This olive-gold example shows apricot-tinged luster within the legends. One small clip on the reverse at 10 o'clock, and a few minor retained laminations and peripheral roller marks are present, all as made. Struck from widely rotated dies. Listed on page 373 of the 2013 Guide Book.
