Description

Lovely Near-Mint 1776 Continental Dollar
With lustrous, satin to semi-reflective surfaces and sharp to full striking detail, this coin is more attractive even than some Mint State Continental dollars that this cataloger (JLA) has handled over the years. It is evenly toned in light pewter gray, and free of outwardly distracting or otherwise significant abrasions. The obverse, is remarkably smooth for this historic type. For many generations this has been one of the most desired early American coins. Interestingly, although Eric P. Newman has identified the engraver as Elisha Gallaudet, to date no information has been found concerning the production quantity or authorization of the same.

Estimate: $0.00 - $0.00
PCGS# 794.
