NGC grades Newman Continental

Another 137 coins, medals, and tokens from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society have been slabbed by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.


They were on their way to be sold Nov. 7-10 in Newman Part XI, the final sale in a series of auctions by Heritage Auctions.

One of the highlights is a pewter Continental dollar of 1776 with csurrency spelled “CURENCY.”

It is attributed as Newman 1-B, because in addition to collecting them, he studied them and compiled the guide to the varieties.

This particular coin is grade NGC AU 55. It is one of just six known of this variety.
