Gem New 66PPQ May 9, 1776 $1Continental Currency May 9, 1776 $1 Fr. CC-31. PCGS Gem New 66PPQ.
This is an impressive note in all regards. As the lowest denomination from the issue date, it is much scarcer in high grades and commands a premium value. The margins are broad and even around the entire perimeter. The emblem on the face shows a weighted bowl on an acanthus plant. The motto is DEPRESSA RESURGIT (Though crushed it recovers). Boldly printed with the nature print back very deeply detailed. This is the second finest note graded by PCGS; there is one Gem New 67PPQ on the population report. An exceptional note.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
