This week's highlight selection is a 1776 Continental Dollar $1 PCGS/CAC XF40 (CURENCY, Pewter). A fascinating example as the origin of these issues is not clear, except that it was likely rooted in the desire of the Continental Congress to disperse 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.
This week's second highlight coin is a 1916 Standing Liberty 25c PCGS MS63 FH.Famous and popular key date SLQ with satiny silver surfaces and nice originality. The 1916 is highly sought by all collectors of key date coinage as a low mintage first-year issue. Full head examples are especially tough.
