1776 Continental Currency-Confederation Dollar. Brass. 39 mm. HK-858, DeLorey-88. Rarity-7. Prooflike Mint State. Bright antique brassy olive-gold surfaces with mottled milky highlights to the obverse. The fields are semi-reflective and support boldly to sharply rendered design elements.

Elder: A Catalogue of His Tokens and Medals," <em>The Numismatist</em>, June 1980) states that the first auction appearance of this type was on June 29, 1917. The muling is attributed to Elder.
