August Bechtler, 1 DOLLAR CAROLINA, 27 Gr. 21 Carats. PCGS graded AU-55. Lightly toned with semi-prooflike surfaces. Here is a beautiful example of this scarce coin, struck in the later period by August Bechtler, the surfaces show typical uneven areas but almost none of the usual handling ticks visible with a glass. Everythign is choice and attractive. Near the devices, the coin retains its mich mint freshness, and appears. It is difficult to imagine how such a coin survived in AU55 condition all these years, demand for gold coinage was high, and most were spent countless times to support merchants in transactions. Pop 79 (PCGS # 10040) .
Estimated Value $2,200 - 2,400.
The William H & Beuelaress K. Helem Collection.
