||Continental Currency January 14, 1779 $1 Fr. CC-87. PCGS Choice About New 58 Apparent. The last Continental Currency series was unique in its use of a red color border cut and partial color emblem vignette. The $1 from this series is one of the key notes. Most were heavily used for change in commerce. Strictly Uncirculated notes are rare, and notes even approaching that grade are recognized now for their great scarcity. Noted is a "Minor Stain on Face," which is at the lower right. But we will note the exceptional face color, full margins and strong printing. This is one of the highest-grade notes of the type we have encountered. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society
