Lot Description
(1837-42) $2 1/2 C. Bechtler Quarter Eagle, 64G. 22C. XF45 NGC. K-11, R.6. This is a coin with a lot of character. Both the die break on the obverse and the moderate circulation wear that this specimen exhibits attest to the popularity of the Bechtler issues in the commerce of the Southeast during the early frontier days of the region. This piece nonetheless displays some remaining luster in the protected areas around the devices, with appealing green-gold surfaces throughout and no detracting marks. A nice Choice XF example. Listed on page 360 of the 2010 Guide Book.
