The Bechtler Press as on display in the Bechtler House in Rutherfordton, N.C.
After ten years on display at the Federal Reserve in New York, Bechtler’s original press from the 1830s is back in Rutherfordton, N.C. for all the world to see. Bringing the press back to Rutherford County was a substantial effort facilitated by many people, and we are proud to have it on display in its hometown.
The press is on loan from the American Numismatic Society and is renewable after five years.
Stay tuned for details on the official “welcome home” grand opening for the arrival of the press.
