    1776 Continental Dollar, AU Details
    Pewter, CURRENCY, Newman 2-C

    1776 $1 Continental Dollar, CURRENCY, Pewter -- Corroded -- NCS. AU Details. Newman 2-C, W-8455, R.3. The origins of Continental dollars have been hotly contested in recent years. Long believed to been a Continental Congress pattern, some specialists now believe they were struck in Europe circa 1783 for sale to medal collectors. This dove-gray example is well defined and without noticeable marks, but verdigris on the RYL in MARYLAND, the ON in CONTINENTAL, and the second R in CURRENCY explain the NCS label notation. A few tiny raised spots on the central obverse are of only minor import. Listed on page 87 of the 2020 Guide Book.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.
