Undated (1831-1834) C. Bechtler $5 Gold. Kagin-15. Rarity-6. With 150 G, Beaded Border. Finely Reeded Edge. Genuine – Cleaned, Smoothed -- PCGS.
This specimen is deep yellow gold throughout and is not entirely uneasy to look at despite the PCGS “Genuine” qualifier. Magnified examination reveals a few places among the legends where the surface has been smoothed and the hairlines from a light long-ago cleaning are also seen. Still, the overall in-hand appearance is that of a highly collectable coin. Advanced specialists might be shy around a coin such as this, but for an entry level collector or type specialist, this coin holds a lot of promise. Take a good look before you plan your bidding strategy for this lot -- you may be pleasantly surprised.
