Undated (1837-1842) Christopher Bechtler $5 Gold. K-20. Rarity-4. 134.G., 21 CARATS, With Star. AU-53 (PCGS). Handsome yellow-gold with a few traces of original verdigris in the lettering. Excellent surfaces display only limited circulation and no bumps or lengthy scratches. Our consigner states that this particular example has long been held by a family from the Raleigh, North Carolina area. It is possible that this was saved fro the time such coins circulated in the area, which extended up to and including the year 1860 and partway through 1861.
