Here's a VERY interesting addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal which
relates to our recent discussions of the Continental dollar.
Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
New Continental Dollar Evidence Emerges
Nothing brings out new evidence more effectively than publishing one’s research, and a flurry of publications in the last few years is no doubt responsible for recent discoveries regarding the Continental Dollar, heretofore mostly unpublished. Recent writers on the subject include John Kleeberg (Journal of American Numismatics, June 2018), Catherine Eagleton (Numismatic Chronicle, 2014), Erik Goldstein and David McCarthy (The Numismatist, January and July 2018), and Maureen Levine and Eric Newman (The Numismatist, July 2014), with authors variously positing American or European origins. Lianna Spurrier has capably compiled the latest findings, drawn from historical and archaeological methods, into a video entitled King to Coins: New Origins of Continental Currency.
