Owner Comments:

Finest of the four known Newman 4-D variety. Rariy, High R7, with a CAC approval of its NGC MS 63 grade. The reverse is rotated about 210 degrees. Two errors occurred on this variety with the date initially being 7776 but corrected by carving the first 7 into a stunted 1. The misspelling of currencey is believed to have occurred when the engraver copied the 2/17/1776 $1/6 Continental Dollar note where currency was spelled "CURRENCEY." Subsequently, this error was corrected too with a "Y" engraved over the second "E" and the last "Y" covered with an ornamental flower or florinated cross. All of these errors add to the charm of this series. Ex Newcomer, "Col" Green, Newman specimen. Plated in the "Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins."
