Undated (1842-1852) August Bechtler $1. K-24. Rarity-3. 27.G., 21.C. Plain Edge. AU Details--Bent (PCGS). Light olive-gold patina adorns both sides of this satin to semi-reflective example. The bend is in the center of the coin, but the overall eye appeal is relatively strong given the fact that most areas present an uncommonly smooth for a lightly circulated Bechtler gold piece. As more collectors expand their interests, these early gold coins often inspire collecting interests, so why not check out this example which has a lot to offer in terms of history. PCGS# 10040.
