We've had a few items on the Continental dollar coins in
recent E-Sylums, but haven't gotten much response. So I checked in with Eric Newman, who published a classic monograph on the topic in 1952 ( The 1776 Continental Currency Coinage).
A little more than a year ago another researcher and I decided to work together to write an article relating to the Continental Currency Coined Dollars and we have been steadily working on it. It will probably be reasonably long. We have some new findings and are seeking some additional material. It seems to be a very complicated subject because as you are aware there is no known official authorization. When our work is ready for publication we will include in the text, a reference to The E-Sylum's recent entries on the subject as these entries show the need for a some further attempt toward even a partially acceptable solution. You state that you have not received "much response", and I am not surprised. Answers to old problems are tough.
