    I've seen articles that say ANACS will slab DC (Moonlight Mint) originals (like the Amero) or restrikes (like the 1975 Eisenhower dollar). Has anyone actually had this done?

    I've e-mailed ANACS but do to the weekend I don't expect a reply until Monday.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I've got a 2009-DC. I would be interested in the response from ANACS.

    Yes, ANACS does the Daniel Carr coins. Have to submit a minimum of 5 coins.

    Just curious; is there value in having a DC coin certified? It seems kind of odd to have a fantasy coin certified to me.

    There are serious collectors of his work. Most of what he creates and sells is not fantasy over-strike pieces, but medals, tokens and unique pieces of bullion or concept work such as examples of designs he conceived for the US Mint when submitting his designs for consideration.

    There are known fakes of DC's work out there and some collectors may wish to protect their collections of his work in something more substantial like a coin holder from a TPG, which stands behind the work originating from DC. Much of what he creates has very limited mintage so protection and certification would be important to serious collectors of his work and help to ensure long term safe keeping of the pieces.

    I've seen the 2009-DC SAE Overstrikes bid up between $200 and $300.

    The 1964-D Peace Dollar Overstrikes, at one time, were selling for between $300 and $450. I think $350 is a reasonable asking price today.

    The IKE's, I'm not so sure about. I think that the $300 that recclm50 is asking will be a "no sale" coin.

    For a better idea, look for the completed sales: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=daniel+carr&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&_okw=&_oexkw=&_adv=1&LH_Complete=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=200&_fpos=&_fsct=&LH_SALE_CURRENCY=0&_sop=3&_dmd=1&_ipg=200

    Thats the reality.

    I like DC's work. I purchased the 2009-DC (thick mint mark) ASE proof because I really wan't one to "sort of" complete my collection. I'm just surprised that we're now certifying a fantasy coin to protect it against cheaper fantasy coins. I guess that I can understand it but it seems a little wierd to me.

    And ANACS wonders why they're bottom of the barrel.

    I really like DC's work. I don't understand the purist bashing of such a talented artist.

    I just noticed on Moonlight Mint web site that DCs 1963 Kennedy Half Dollars went up by $15.00. Glad I got mine early.

    I now have the complete set of Kennedys. That's all I have of his work. Sorry that I didn't find him sooner.
