(1831-1834) Bechtler $2.50

K-8 Beaded, with 75G PCGS MS62

Throughout the entire Bechtler coinage era, lasting from 1831 until about 1850, the family coined nine varieties of $2.50 gold pieces. This coin represents the K-8 variety, with RUTHERFORD in a small circle in the center of the obverse and the weight 75 G. below the 20 C. Based on current rarity ratings published in the March 2017 Kagin’s catalog featuring the Dr. Chris Allan Collection, no more than 200 examples survive from all nine mulings. The average grade of all PCGS certified Bechtler quarter eagles is AU53. The present example is far finer than the typical survivor and is the second best of the Kagin-8 die pairing that PCGS has examined. The finest known example realized $123,375 in the March 2017 offering of the Allan Collection. Thus, this coin has a PCGS population of only 1 with 1 graded higher. Lighter in color and far more lustrous in hand than seen in our images.
