Undated (1831-1834) Christopher Bechtler $1 Gold. K-1. Rarity-4. 30.G., Star. AU-58 (PCGS).
Bright and lustrous for this early gold issue. The surfaces show some reflectivity in the protected areas and are bright yellow gold with a hint of copper. No surface problems whatsoever and much finer than often seen as these tended to circulate hard and not many survived at all. For identification there is a dull nick low and right of the F in RUTHERF.
