The exceptional quality of this highly desirable issue will make it the centerpiece of any collection. The unblemished obverse surfaces are light silver-grey with much of the original luster showing through among the letters of the legend. The reverse is equally impressive and still has most of the original brilliant flashy luster throughout. All state names are clearly visible on in the reverse links. Do not overlook the conservative PCGS grade on this piece.

It has been suggested that the Continental dollars were a token issue of the Continental Congress intended to serve as that denomination in place of paper currency; however, the absence of any documentary evidence in the papers of Continental Congress suggest that the pieces were a private issue of some sort. The few silver and copper pieces that were made with this design were likely experimental strikes.
