Undated (Circa 1922). C. Bechtler $5 Gold. Chapman Restrike. Kagin-31. Rarity-6+. With 141 G., 20 Carats. Plain Edge. Proof-65+ CAM PCGS.
This exquisite Gem Proof Chapman Restrike is readily deserving of the PCGS “+” designation. A bright lemon-yellow gold specimen, this beauty enjoys pale olive iridescence throughout. The richly reflective mirror surfaces are essentially mark-free save for some faint hairlines, and the frosted letters in the design all seemingly float against the bright, deep background. We note two tiny toning flecks on the obverse rim above the N in CAROLINA. The dies are in the same state as in K-30 offered above, faintly rusted and with the ever-present die crack from the rim upward at 6 o’clock. Struck by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia to the order of Henry Chapman, who may have had just a dozen of each variety of A. and C. Bechtler $5 restrikes made.

The present specimen is well-deserved of the CAC “greenbean” sticker, and it draws high marks for physical quality and overall visual aesthetics from us as well. It is the finest known specimen. Don’t be shy when the bidding starts on this lot!

Obverse: CAROLINA GOLD at rim from 8 to 4 o’clock around, 141.G: at center, 20. below, small CARATS. curves below. Die break from 6:00 to A in CARRATS.
Reverse: C. BECHTLER. RUTHERFORD. and star around, 5 at center, DOLLARS. curves below.
Die Alignment: 180 degrees, coin turn.

PCGS Population: 1; none finer. Another Proof-65 has also been certified by PCGS, but without the “+” designation.

Ex: From the Allen Collection.
