(Credit: Professional Coin Grading Services) 

(FoxNews) – A rare 1776 Continental dollar that was bought at a French flea
market for less than $1 is worth nearly $100,000.

The coin was purchased by a person who has remained anonymous to this
point for 56 cents in June 2018, according to a
statement from Professional
Coin Grading Services (PCGS), which graded the coin.

"The seller had a cookie box full of coins and medals for sale and, while the
buyer was looking through it, the seller pulled out another box of coins with
this coin on top," PCGS wrote in the statement. "The buyer unfamiliar with
this piece asked a price, and the seller said 50 [Euro] cents. The coin was purchased, and the new owner later Googled ‘Continental Currency’ and
‘1776’ to discover what he had. Believing he had found a treasure, he took
it to a local coin dealer for authenticity, who was unsure and suggested he
send it to the United States for authentication."

Before the switch to steel took place, a handful of cents were minted 
by mistake in copper, making a 1943 Bronze Lincoln cent coin (above) one of the most famous coins in U.S. history: 76 years later, the very
first of these error coins ever discovered will make history when
Heritage Auctions offers the rarity Jan. 10 in Orlando, Florida.
