August Bechtler, 5 DOLLARS CAROLINA, 134 gr. 21 carats. PCGS graded AU-50. Kagin-20. Rarity-4. A nice example with some lustre still visable. And a rare survivor from an early period in America's numismatic heritage. Typical greenish-yellow color from the trace elements in the Carolina-mined alloy, with the surfaces showing only a few small abrasions from its short time in circulation. This is an affordable Bechtler $5 variety, one that will fit nicely into a Type Set of early U.S. gold struck by private (non-governmental) minters. Pop 13; 13 finer, 4 in 53, 7 in 55, 2 in 58 (PCGS # 10046) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

 
Realized $11,213
