Enticing Mint State-61 PCGS C. Bechtler $1 Gold Of the 30 Grains Variety

This beautiful Bechtler dollar, the first American gold coin of this denomination, is flashy and bright with semi-brilliant fields that show outstanding preservation and careful die preparation. The strike is sharp throughout and the color is an attractive blend of copper-gold and yellow-gold. Clean surfaces too as there are minimal scuffs or nicks to distract the eye. Identifiable by a small lamination on the L of GOLD on the reverse. It is one of the top dozen known of this issue, and a glorious example for the specialist of this series in terms of quality and eye appeal.

PCGS#: 10064

Pedigree: From the Dr. Dexter Seymour Collection. Earlier from our (Stack's) sale of June, 1982, lot 594. Lot tag included.
