PCGS AU-53 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale" May 27-29, 2001, Lot 4248, where it was described as follows: "No Date. C. Bechtler Gold Dollar. CAROLINA. 30 G. PCGS graded About Uncirculated 53. Variety that has the word ONE properly aligned (there is another Bechtler Dollar in which the letter N is backwards). Lustrous throughout, with semiprooflike gleam in the fields on both sides; light hairlines plus some faint pin scratches which may cause you to examine it a bit more closely just to be sure."
