Fr. CC-1 First Continental Currency Denomination & Issue
Continental Congress. May 10, 1775. One Dollar. First Continental Currency Issue at Philadelphia. Very Fine.
Fr. CC-1. A pleasing, circulated example of the very first denomination and issue note by the Continental Congress near the start of the Revolutionary War. Many collectors now consider this to be the first "American" note, thus is has climbed in stature and its desirability. This note has a clean, even appearance being well centered on both its face and back.
