1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURENCY, Pewter, AU50 PCGS. Newman 1-C, W-8445, R.3. Newman 1-C is one of the three relatively available Continental dollar varieties, along with CURRENCY varieties with (N. 3-D) and without (N. 2-C) EG FECIT. Four other Newman varieties are formidable rarities, as is any variety struck in silver or brass. The present piece is ideal for the early American type collector, since there are no dark oxidation spots, often seen on pewter Continental dollars. The design shows moderate wear, but the lavender-gray surfaces are much less abraded than is typical for circulated examples. Listed on page 87 of the 2021 Guide Book. From The Gibney Family Collection.
