Owner Comments:

Newman 3-D plate coin, both obverse and reverse, from his 1952 Continental Dollar study. 1959 Newman paper identifies "EG" as Elisha Gallaudet. Die alingnment shifted 10 degrees with absolutely flawless surfaces. This is one of the finest Continental Dollars in existence and the photo does not do justice to its clarity and radiance. It also carries a CAC approval of its NGC MS 66 grade. Very little is known of its provenance.

May 31, 2015: Confirmed to be the plated coin in the December 1882 Charles I. Bushnell auction, plate 2, #713, by S.H.&H Chapman. This was a truly exciting discovery for me and I thank Mark Borckardt of Heritage Auctions for providing the confirmation.
