Closes: 5H 21M

A fascinating issue as the origin of these issues is not clear, except that it was likely rooted in the desire of the Continental Congress to issue a monetary medium of exchange. Issued in 1776, most of these examples were made of pewter as silver was not affordable to the fledgling government. Likely struck in three different cities, New York City, Philadelphia, and/or Lancaster, PA these are very popular issues due to their association with the Revolutionary War. This particular piece is an even gunmetal gray in color with nice remaining luster, especially around the date. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.

From a mintage of just 39,812, most remaining pieces are a darker brown shade. This lovely reddish-brown example is underrated from a value standpoint as only 2 pieces are designated as "Red" with this being the lone Red-Brown.
