Perfectly original with russet-tinted surfaces and plenty of meat on the central devices. CAC approved for quality.
The finest graded by both services! The first gold dollar struck in America, these were issued by C Bechtler in 1831 and A Bechtler in 1842. These first issues were sanctioned by the federal government and were our first gold dollars issued in America from gold discovered in North Carolina and Georgia. The Reeded Edge is particularly noteworthy due to its rarity and the first Reeded Edge dollar of A Bechtler. Originally deemed an R 8 by Kagin. There are examples that were proven to be misattributed by both services and until disproven this is the sole survivor of a mint state example.
Well-centered strike with semi prooflike luster adhering. A rare centered date, the last auction appearance of a NGC MS61 fetched $34,500! These first issues were sanctioned by the federal government and were our first gold dollars issued in America.
From a low mintage of 10,008 coins the Hawaiian commem has long been considered the key to the type set of Silver commems. Issued to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Captain James Cook's landing in Hawaii. Very tough in high grades. CAC approved for quality.
Beautiful near mint state example of this popular three-year type. Rare and desirable in this quality. In fact, there are only 3 other examples graded as such.
A scarce issue in such a high state of preservation. Lustrous with beautiful, yellow-gold fields.
