||(1842-52) G$1 A. Bechtler Dollar, 27G. 21C., Plain Edge AU55 NGC. K-24, R.3. A. Bechtler dollars were produced in the timeframe of 1842-1852, well after the nation's branch mints in Dahlonega, Georgia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, had begun to coin gold. This variety displays all regular As, unlike many earlier issues. According to Kagin, it "sometimes comes with high rims and rotated reverses." This Choice AU example displays much remaining luster over khaki surfaces and exhibits only a few minor abrasions. The planchet is bent slightly. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
