Error 1776 XF 40 Rotated Rev PCGS $1 Continental Currency Pewter This is a treasure lot

CURRENCY variety struck in pewter. The planchet and surfaces are very attractive and devices are well defined. The obverse is nicely centered on the planchet while the reverse is rotated 90 degrees counter clockwise. The issuing of hard currency was looked upon as an important step for the Continental Congress. By taking this important step, the Continental Congress could kill two birds with one stone: prove to the world the national sovereignty and financial stability of the United Colonies; and provide real metallic backing for the paper Continental notes that were helping to fund the war effort. As an indelible link with the American Revolution, we suspect that this rare coin will appeal not only to advanced numismatists, but also to anyone with more than a passing interest in U.S. history.
