"Imitation numismatic item means an item which purports to be, but in fact is not, an original numismatic item or which is a reproduction, copy, or counterfeit of an original numismatic item. Such term includes an original numismatic item which has been altered or modified in such a manner that it could reasonably purport to be an original numismatic item other than the one which was altered or modified. The term shall not include any re-issue or re-strike of any original numismatic item by the United States or any foreign government." From the Hobby Act. http://www.collectors.org/Library/Hobby_Protection_Act.asp I would say that this restrike purports to be a real 1964 silver dollar, which was legally struck. He may be a sharp dude, but I would have to be educated why this is not in fact a reproduction that is violating this very law. You saying restrikes/overstrikes are immune to me is only appliable to the US mint or foreign nations. Yes, he has a former mint coin press, but he is not the US mint.
