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 piece is fresh to the market with a phenomenal strike and detail that is second to none. Two former PCGS graders even suggested cracking it out for a MS64 grade as it was the nicest that they had ever seen. We liked the coin in its current holder and hope that its next owner will appreciate it as well. It is truly a numismatic rarity that is very rare in such nice condition. CAC approved for quality.
