    Pewter 1776 Continental Dollar, CURENCY

    1776 $1 Continental Dollar VF 30 PCGS. CURENCY. Pewter. Breen-1089; Crosby Pl. VIII, 15; Newman 1-C. Olive-gray patina blankets minimally abraded surfaces. The denticles are only partially complete, a diagnostic feature of this variety. A meandering die break (as struck) is also noted over the left obverse, as well as a planchet flaw (also as produced) near the Y in CURENCY. Technically a pattern, the Continental dollar is an immensely popular coin due to its close association with the American Revolution. Strikings are known in pewter (or tin), brass, silver, and copper. There has been some debate (see Breen, 1988) about whether or not these coins actually circulated. We do not know the answer to this question, and the present example may have been used in commerce, or it may just be a pocket piece. Regardless of which theory, if either, better explains the friction over the raised features of this coin, there is no doubt that it is a desirable mid-grade representative of this classic American rarity. Listed on page 33 of the current Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2AYN, PCGS# 791)
