Might be waiting awhile
I have all the time in the world. If I don't get it, I will live - I'm always finding more than I can afford. These will start showing up as scrap once people give them to heirs willingly or otherwise. I got a 1964-D Moonlight Mint pattern Peace Dollar in scrap.
I got a couple of rolls of silver Kennedys for face value when silver was over $30/oz. Doesn't mean I expect to get more at that price.
(Are you sure the 1964-D was a Carr? I don't doubt that an uninformed seller would let one go for scrap, but that's a commonly faked date...)
Yep. It was sold on ebay after it had been filed checking to see if it was silver and went through an oven. It was rough and still brought $60. Dan Carr even called asking where we git it. It was a pattern that was supposed to be scrapped, but whoever got it from him sold it - probably thinking it was a junk Peace dollar worth more than melt.
Cool find. Really cool find.
And, to your original point, I imagine there will be an intermittent trickle of heirs, burglars, and disgruntled spouses "disposing" of Carr pieces -- and junk silver, and gem 19th-century US rarities, and everything else. But that doesn't say anything about the overall market trend for those items, or how they will perform decades down the road.
A pattern 64d Peace? @dcarr care to shed some light on this?
There were only one left of the Shield and one of the Memorial, 4 of the bulk handed Wheats. these are now all sold out. When they first came out i picked up one high grade 1907 which came back from Anacs a red ms69 and a the 42 steel came back ms69. if i get time i'll post some pic's.
As I recall there was one over-strike "1964-D" Peace that got out by mistake (Die Pair 1 or 2, I don't remember which). It was supposed to be defaced and/or melted but escaped that somehow when it was scrapped.
But note that I do have a few of these in my "archives" and they will probably get out some day (but not anytime in the foreseeable future).
The different die pairs are shown on this page (Die Pairs 1 and 2 at the bottom):
The cupboard is bare. What’s next?
I hope he's busy minting the 2017 KotCT Anniversary Medal Order
Not just "bare". Actually and totally barren. Or it was. Just added a few new things (Washington over-strikes).
Nice holiday surprise!
If you have to have 1 that's a good one to have.
