Writing in Private Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States (1981), Donald Kagin noted, in regard to the Bechtler private gold coinage operation in North Carolina: "Another major modification in the Bechtler coinage occurred in 1834. That year Congress passed a bill reducing the gold content of our gold coins. Bechtler prepared new dies engraved with the date 'August 1, 1834' and began producing new coins with the reduced weight."
