Lot Description
(1837-42) G$1 C. Bechtler Dollar, N Reversed AU50 PCGS. K-4, R.4. While not a rarity among Bechtler dollars, this variety has an enduring popularity because of the dramatic die blunder with the N in ONE reversed, actually punched over a correctly aligned N. The surfaces appear original with significant reddish-gold and lilac color. A couple of small die imperfections are noted, but the only one of significance is a lamination in the field below the 8 in 28G. Listed on page 364 of the 2012 Guide Book.
