    What's it worth? One of eight at this grade.

    Ok I will go ahead and say it, I love @dcarr 's original designs. I have no love for these overstrikes though. Not because of the whole "counterfeit" argument. Just because I think they are boring. He can do so much better and I would like to see more of his original work.

    As for the value of OP's coin, I'd suggest you check recent ebay completed sales @nwfdub. That'll give you a rough guess as to what the market is currently paying for them.

    This is my only Daniel Carr piece, found in a customer wrapped roll of quarters:

    Egads... OP, I am sure you couldn’t have known. You may or may not get an answer to your question. But fasten your seatbelt for a wild ride!

    Same with me. I'm a big fan. It stops with his original designs.

    Thanks for those who shot flack. I was hoping since this section was about value, that maybe some of you had some. Value, that is.

    As far as eBay, completed sales, they're none of this grade ever sold. This being 1 of 8 at this grade, for this die pair. Fewer of other die pairs exist at this grade.

    I personaly don't care if you like Carr, or think what he's is doing is counterfeit. I've heard it all before. Instead of adding flaming comments, or starting an argument, why not stick with the topic, or simply move along.

    Surely someone, of the thousands he has sold to, has an opinion on what this is worth being more rare than others sold.

    Look, Moonlight Mint produces some spectacular art. But art is what it is. Personally, I would like to have one of his fantasy 64 Peace dollars but I am not willing to spend that much for art. And in the end that is the answer to the question. There are no Grey Sheets or PCGS price guides to help gauge a value. Art is valued at what a person is willing to pay. Even TPG graded art.

    No kidding. If there were a gray sheet, I wouldn't have posted asking a value.
    It's like you guys have a one track mind. Think out of the box a little. Were it a 64 D, struck by the mint, only one of eight, I'd bet you'd ALL be drooling. Ergo, it must have value.

    I will ask all comments henceforth to refrain to possible value. As I said prior I've heard it all. This includes what is worth to you. Don't want to pay what he's asking, I get it. What would you pay for a rare, albeit fantasy, specimen?

    It's not possible to put a value on something like this. There are no guides. Auction results are about all there is but I understand there are none for this one.

    Personally, I don't think the 1964 Peace Dollars are doing that well! I like Daniel Carr's designs but the real coin look doesn't appeal to me that much! :D That's as much as I'll say as I don't want to rock the boat! 146.gif

    I’m with @Paddy54. I’d personally value that at melt plus $10.00 because it’s cool artwork that I like. Artwork is worth whatever someone wants to pay. Picasso’s work is priceless to some, but to me it’s just another weird painting from a opioid addict that cut his ear off. I guess my pinky doesn’t stick out far enough. o_O

    Pablo Picasso wasn't an opioid addict nor did he cut his ear off.....and by far Dan Carr is no Pablo Picasso....and yeah I own two orginal Picasso's and two Erte's works...love art deco

    Back to topic. Please refrain from comments other than value. I don't care about your broken records or beaten dead horses.

    Thanks for those who posted values.

    Raw examples have sold for $200+
    There is an ICG MS 70 listed for $350 (not sold).

    Anacs examples are likely more popular than ICG, so I could see it selling for more than $350 (but it all depends on auction vs fixed price and how quickly one wants to sell). If you have time, set a price you are comfortable with and allow offers (buy-it-now with offers listing). If you want to take a risk, run it as a $1 start no reserve auction.
