    Continental Currency July 22, 1776 $5 PCGS Very Fine 30.
    The July 22, 1776 issue, with an authorization of $5,000,000, mirrored the designs used for the previous November 29, 1775. It comprised notes denominated between $2 and $30, with the $1 note being eliminated and the $30 note (as used in the May 10, 1775 issue) being added. The reason for the elimination of the $1, according to Newman, was that it was anticipated that silver 1776 Continental Dollars would be issued. Had this actually occurred, it is likely that the coins would have quickly vanished from circulation in accordance with Gresham's Law. This example has seen some moderate time in circulation and has solid paper for the grade.
