Attractive 1776 Continental Curency Dollar

1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURENCY, Pewter XF45 PCGS. Newman 1-C, Hodder 1-A.3, R.3. Here is an attractive example for the numismatist who desires one of these historically important pieces. No other colonials offer the combination of both large size and the date 1776. This particular coin is fairly well struck, and shows the desired light to medium gray color throughout. Examination will discover some minor scratches on the left side of the obverse and reverse, as well as nicks and ticks primarily on the devices. Nevertheless, this coin is solid for the grade and lacks the serious tin pesting that often is found on these early pewter/tin issues. The symbolism of the reverse is quite important, as each state is named within the chain links that form a circle, with the center stating simply WE ARE ONE and AMERICAN CONGRESS. Later, the chain device was employed on the initial coining of Large cents in 1793. An American classic which has remained popular since they time these were struck. Listed on page 39 of the 2005 Guide Book. (#791) (NGC ID# 2AYN, PCGS# 791)
