Lot Description
(1837-42) $5 C. Bechtler Five Dollar, 128G. 22C. AU50 PCGS. K-23, High R.6. This piece is a clean, problem-free example with just a few noticeable marks on each side, along with numerous trivial nicks and a small number of wispy hairlines. The striking details are excellent, and highpoint wear is minimal. The surfaces have taken on a rich, deep olive-gold color in the fields with contrasting copper-red luster around the devices. A pleasing AU example of this scarce Bechtler variety. Listed on Page 346 of the 2007 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 50, 8 finer (11/06).
