    Description

    Continental Currency May 10, 1775 $1 PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    Surprisingly, the $1 is one of the scarcest of all of the denominations of Continental currency. This $1 was part of the original issue emitted by the Continental Congress placed in circulation in August 1775 and was intended to pay the initial expenses of the American Revolution. It has the emblem depicting an acanthus plant under a weighted bowl with the motto DEPRESSA RESURGIT (Though crushed it recovers) on the face and a nature print of ragweed and two willow leaves on the back. 49,000 $1s were authorized for issue. The note has clear margins and is completely intact with no repairs or meaningful condition impairments.
    From the Colonial Valley Collection, Part II
