    1776 Continental Dollar, Unc Details
    Newman 3-D, EG FECIT, in Pewter

    1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURRENCY, EG FECIT, Pewter -- Tooled -- PCGS Genuine. Unc Details. Newman 3-D. W-8460. R.4. A flashy and distinctive Continental Currency dollar that has been tooled at 6 o'clock obverse / 12 o'clock reverse, with some likely additional modifications near the center of the reverse. The tooling was clearly executed by a professional, and takes some effort to locate. It is an otherwise uncirculated example of the only variety of Continental Currency dollar to include the designer's signature (EG FECIT, for "E.G. made it"), on the obverse below MIND YOUR BUSINESS. The EG refers to Elisha Gallaudet, who is known for engraving New York paper currency of the 1771-1776 period, most notably the February 17, 1776 issue bearing designs similar to the Continental dollar coins. Usually encountered in pewter, this variety also exists in brass and silver. Listed on page 87 of the 2018 Guide Book.
