1776 Continental Dollar. CURRENCY. Newman 2-C, W-8455. URS-10. Pewter. EF-45 (PCGS). Medium steel-gray with olive overtones and slate-gray highlights. Visually pleasing in-hand with surfaces that yield no major disturbances or tin pest under low magnification. All the small details are present, if somewhat worn, but all the states' names and other features are still fairly bold for the grade. Choice for the assigned grade, and like its partially beaded rings reverse counterpart offered elsewhere in the sale, <strong>off the market for decades</strong>, exciting and fresh as such, and certain to please its next steward. Serious bidders only need apply for this one!
