Select 1776 Continental Dollar, MS63
Newman 1-C, CURENCY

1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURENCY, Pewter MS63 PCGS. CAC. Newman 1-C, Hodder 1-A.3, W-8445, R.3. Intermediate die state. Newman 1-C is easily the most plentiful single variety among all surviving Continental dollars, and the intermediate die state is seen more often than the early or late die states. The Continental dollars were issued in conjunction with coinage proposals and requests at the time of our nation's independence. Today they are tangible reminders of the struggle that ensued against the British leading up to the Declaration of Independence and, eventually, the Constitution.
The denomination of the Continental coinage has been debated over recent years, with cent and dollar the two likely choices. Some have suggested that the pewter pieces were intended to be cents, and the silver pieces dollars. We tend to stay with numismatic tradition in this regard and call all of these pieces dollars unless someone provides convincing evidence to the contrary.
This Select Mint State piece is exceptional, with brilliant gray luster and considerable light ivory reflectivity in the protected areas of the design on both sides. The strike of this Select Mint State coin is excellent, and its overall aesthetic appeal is remarkable. For the history connoisseur who appreciates outstanding quality, this MS63 example with its reflective surfaces is a coin that will be a welcome collection addition. Listed on page 81 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 791)
