1776 Continental Unit or Dollar. Newman 1-C. CURENCY. EF Details – Plugged – Genuine PCGS.

Deep steel gray with lighter gray features. Holed at the C of CONTINENTAL, which manifests itself as a neatly placed plug directly in the center of the N. Jersey ring on the reverse. Usual die break above UGI of FUGIO. No serious marks present. A pleasing piece despite its mentioned handicap, with sharp features and good overall eye appeal, blemishes and all. Whether this is actually a dollar or even a United States issue has been called into question lately, most recently at an after-hours talk given at the November, 2019 Baltimore show. (Unfortunately, the writer chose that evening to fall and break his left humerus near the shoulder socket, and therefore missed the no doubt interesting discussion.) Is it American and intended as a coinage, or British and simply a well-thought medal? No matter which camp you reside in, there can be no denying the importance of this All-American, 1776-dated classic. Take a good look at this specimen – it is finer overall than the qualifier may lead you to believe.
