Pewter CURRENCY 1776 Continental Dollar AU531776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURRENCY, Pewter AU53 PCGS. Crosby Pl. VIII, 16. Newman 2-C. Breen-1092. The fields are gunmetal-gray, while protected areas exhibit luminous ivory-gray luster. Unlike so many of this issue (because of the softness of the white metal alloy), this piece has only moderate marks from circulation and handling. A perfect compromise for someone who wishes to spend somewhat less than the price of an Uncirculated specimen, but still wants a coin with the entire design clear and strong. Struck from widely rotated dies. The Continental dollar obverse was recently utilized for the reverse of the 2006-P Ben Franklin Founding Father silver dollar, part of a trend to use re-old designs that began with the 1986 American Eagles. Listed on page 81 of the 2007 Guide Book.
Ex: Dr. Joseph M. Seventko Collection (Heritage, 10/01), lot 5109, which realized $15,525.
