    1776 Continental Dollar, VF25
    CURENCY, Pewter, W-8445

    1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURENCY, Pewter VF25 PCGS. CAC. Newman 1-C, W-8445, R.3. The 1776 Continental dollars were issued in late 1776, and were probably intended to take the place of paper bills issued by the Continental Congress earlier in the year. Examples are known in seven different die varieties, with three different compositions. This coin was struck in pewter and features the misspelling of CURENCY and the solid lines in the reverse rings that characterize the W-8445 variety.

    The present coin offers lightly abraded silver and gray surfaces that retain a few hints of original mint luster. Moderate, even wear on both sides leaves all lettering legible and much interior detail intact on the design elements. Listed on page 85 of the 2015 Guide Book.
