Description (1842-52) $5 A. Bechtler Five Dollar, 134G. 21C. AU58+ NGC. CAC. K-27, Low R.5. A rare August Bechtler variety, coined after 1841. Struck with a reeded edge. The light olive-green surfaces reveal considerable remnants of original mint luster, as coppery red-orange highlights cling to many of the devices. The fields display distinctly prooflike qualities on each side. The rims are incompletely finished on the upper half of the reverse, but most of the other design motifs are boldly produced. A thick horizontal die break crosses through the IN in CAROLINA. Census: 1 in 58+, 2 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $16450.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
