Nearly Mint State Bechtler (Center Circle) $2.50 PCGS/CAC AU58

Rare

At a time when federal specie was virtually unseen in circulation, the Bechtlers successfully converted the gold mined in and around Rutherfordton and beyond into coinage suitable for local commerce, and of consistently high quality. It was a group of local miners who first petitioned Christopher Bechtler, a respected jeweler, to perform this assaying and coining service.  According to Don Kagin, “this was quite agreeable to Bechtler, for on July 2, 1831, and for several weeks thereafter, he ran an advertisement which announced that he was ready to coin the products of the mines into $2.50 and $5.00 pieces … .” Later, Bechtler would be the first to put gold dollars into the channels of American commerce.  PCGS has graded just 10 in all grades combined for this variety. Of those, this is the only AU58 with just 3 higher.

1938 New Rochelle Half Dollar PCGS/CAC SP (Specimen) 67

A Glittering Specimen

Reportedly, a total of 50 “presentation” strikes (now called Specimen strikes by both PCGS and NGC) were produced for distribution to members of the Coinage Committee, the Westchester County Coin Club, and local dignitaries. Struck on proof planchets with polished dies, the pieces resemble true proofs — usually with flashy, brilliant surfaces and mirror-like fields. Commemorating the 250th anniversary of the French Huguenots settlement at New Rochelle, New York, these “Specimen” coins are rare and popular among classic commemorative collectors. The PCGS population is only 11 with 5 higher, the highest grade being a lone MS68 example.

1829 Curl Base 2 Capped Bust Dime PCGS/CAC F12

Highly Collectible

The Curl Base 2 date on this obverse die is paired with a Small 10C reverse to create the only variety of the date style, a major Guide Book variety with perhaps only a few dozen pieces in existence. When examples appear for sale in major auctions, and that happens only infrequently, the grade is typically low, usually only Good or VG. The PCGS population is a mere 2 with 5 higher, with none better than VF!

1885 Gold Dollar PCGS/CAC PR67 DCAM

Simply Splendidly Stunning

Of the 1,105 gold dollar proofs struck in 1885, PCGS has certified a total of 107 submissions. That figure comprises all designations and almost certainly includes duplications. From among those 107 submissions, only 14 have received a Deep Cameo designation. Few match or exceed the quality of this outstanding Gem. The majority of known examples do not display any degree of cameo contrast, highlighting the utmost rarity of this offering. A thick coating of frost covers fully struck motifs, allowing for the appreciation of the bold contrast produced against the deeply reflective, glassy mirrors of this stunning representative. Opportunities to acquire a Deep Cameo example of the 1885 are extremely rare and not to be passed up. The PCGS population is just three with only two (PR67+’s) higher.

Highly Original Looking 1805 4 Berries Draped Bust Dime PCGS/CAC MS63+

The dimes of 1805 are known only by two die marriages that share a common obverse, with a small spine protruding from the top of the 5 in the date. The reverses show four or five berries, with the present 4 Berries reverse having narrow A’s and leaves that are clear of the peripheral lettering. No date is better suited to represent the Heraldic Eagle type than the 1805 dime. Although this example is a bit lighter and brighter in-hand, if you like dipped white examples, this one is most assuredly NOT for you. On the other hand, it looks about as original as you are likely to find and a good number of collectors prefer such coins. Listed at $15,000 in the PCGS price guide.
