1834 $5 C. Bechtler, AT RUTHERFORD, 140G 20C Plain Edge, PCGS AU55. K-17, Rarity-5. All of the fourth series Bechtler five dollar gold pieces, K-16 through K-19, were produced with the date AUGUST 1, 1834 in a second, smaller circle inside CAROLINA GOLD / CARATS, which rings the rims. The weight 140 / G. / 20. is in the center. On the K-17, the other side reads C. BECHTLER. AT RUTHERFORD , and the edge is plain; it is reeded on the R.8 K-16 five dollars (and there is a colon between C and BECHTLER). This is a simply beautiful example, with bright, lustrous surfaces showing the interplay of rose and lime-green on each side.
