Undated (1834-1840) C. Bechtler $2.50 Gold. Kagin-11. Rarity-5+. 64.G., 22 Uneven. MS-62 PCGS.
Here is a sight for the proverbial sore eyes, a Bechtler gold dollar with original deep golden yellow surfaces alight with plenty of luster and displaying a wealth of warm sunset orange iridescence throughout. All the design is sharp and the tiny saw-toothed dentils on each side are all present on this evenly centered specimen. We note an obverse die crack from the rim at 9 o’clock to the lower base of the 2 in the denomination, and another from the rim just past noon downward through the T in BECHTLER. This appealing and not noticeably marked example of Kagin-11 is tied for finest certified by PCGS, quite the accomplishment for this ever-popular Bechtler Family issue. That any examples exist in Mint State is nearly unfathomable, and the presence of what is potentially one of the finest examples of the variety- here will mark a turning point in audience participation – watch the hands pop up for this one.

Obverse: BECHTLER. RUTHERF: around, 2.50. at center.
Reverse: GEORGIA GOLD. arcing around, 64.G. at upper center, 22. beneath, CARATS beneath at bottom of rim.

Die Alignment: about 345 degrees or nearly medal turn.

PCGS Population: 2; none finer.
