1826 Erie Canal Completion. White Metal. 45 mm. HK-1. Rarity-6. About Uncirculated. The first entry in the so-called dollar reference. This rare and historic piece notes the opening of the Erie Canal, regarded at the time as the "greatest engineering feat of modern times". It allowed goods to be transported between Albany and Buffalo at 1/20 the original cost and in less than 1/7 of the former time, essentially opening up the West to profitable agriculture, and ensuring that New York City would surpass Philadelphia as the primary seaport of the United States. This lightly circulated specimen still retains considerable reflectivity, especially in the fields around the motifs and legends. Also included is the original wooden presentation box with paper inserts stating: "THIS BOX was made out of a piece of would, brought from Erie in the first Canal Boat THE SENECA CHIEF." A beautiful specimen that certainly possesses the "story" appeal. (Total: 2 items)
