Prominent numismatist Professor Montroville Dickeson, publisher of the American Numismatic Manual of 1859, had dies made and struck copies of the Continental Dollar as souvenirs for the 1876 Centennial Exposition. The Dickeson dies later fell into the hands of a number of prominent numismatists including Thomas Elder, Q. David Bowers and Robert Bashlow who used the Dickeson dies to restrike medals. Dickeson’s are original strikings, Elder, Bowers and Bashlow are the restrikes using the Dickeson dies.
