2511 (1842-1852) $1.00. August Bechtler. Kagin 24, Stack 22 AU $1,500.00
(1842-1852) $1.00. August Bechtler. Kagin 24, Stack 22. About Uncirculated. This bright yellow-gold...
About Uncirculated. This bright yellow-gold example of the Plain Edge, 21 C. 27 G. Dollar shows little actual circulation. The planchet is somewhat rippled toward the outer rims, providing a fascinating texture. A glass finds a tiny dig over 'N' of the issuer's middle initial.
2512 (1842-1852) $5.00. A. Bechtler. Stack 23, K.27 (Low R-5) AU $11,000.00
(1842-1852) $5.00. A. Bechtler. Stack 23, K.27 (Low R-5). About Uncirculated. This obverse is inscribed...
About Uncirculated. This obverse is inscribed CAROLINA GOLD, 134.G:/ 21./ CARATS. The reverse identifies August Bechtler as coiner AT RUTHERFORD. This coin shows some very superficial handling with a few unimportant marks but is beautifully struck and altogether desirable, vastly superior to most other surviving examples of the Rutherfordton, North Carolina, private coinage.
2513 1851 $50.00. U.S. Assayer Augustus Humbert. .887 THOUS. K.6 (R-4) EF $26,000.00
1851 $50.00. U.S. Assayer Augustus Humbert. .887 THOUS. K.6 (R-4). Extremely Fine. This example of...
Extremely Fine. This example of the rugged California coinage of Humbert's Provisional Mint has seen its share of normal circulation but remains boldly detailed and appealing. The scroll with its raised 887 THOUS is crisply impressed, as are the national name and date. The outer AUGUSTUS HUMBERT legend varies in its completeness, becoming weak at 2:30 to 5:00. The edge reeding is somewhat...  more
2514 1852 $10.00. United States Assay Office of Gold. 884 THOUS. K.12 (R-5) AU $3,000.00
1852 $10.00. United States Assay Office of Gold. 884 THOUS. K.12 (R-5). About Uncirculated in strict...
About Uncirculated in strict terms of wear, pale yellow gold surfaces are remarkably smooth but there is an abrasion on the eagle's neck and an unobtrusive obverse rim nick at 2:00.
2515 1852 $50.00. United States Assay Office of Gold. .900 THOUS. K.14 (High R-5) AU $26,000.00
1852 $50.00. United States Assay Office of Gold. .900 THOUS. K.14 (High R-5). About Uncirculated....
About Uncirculated. The scroll over Charles Cushing Wright's defiant eagle gives the fineness as 900 THOUS, the outer legend identifies the United States Assay Office of Gold that succeeded U.S. Assayer Augustus Humbert's earlier facility that first coined the octagonal $50 ''Slugs'' that are today the greatest numismatic relics of the California Gold Rush. This reverse shows the engine-turned...  more

2517 J.J. Conway & Co. (1861) $2.50; 1862 $5.00, (1861) $10.00 K.1-3 GEM BU $1,750.00
J.J. Conway & Co. (1861) $2.50; 1862 $5.00, (1861) $10.00 K.1-3.  Gem Brilliant Uncirculated.  This...
Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. This set of three Brass gilt pieces was struck in 1956 from the Georgia Gulch, Colorado, assayer and coiner's original dies. The pieces were struck with Conway's original dies, preserved by the Colorado Historical Society to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Denver Mint, itself directly descended from Colorado private coiner, Clark, Gruber &...  more
