    Bought these 2 on Ebay the other day right after they were listed. They were listed together for $185 plus $5 S/H, total $190. The 1917 would grade MS69.

    Good deal ??

    I'd say you got a very good deal.
    I think the issue price on the Kennedy was $95 and $175 on the 1917 Peace.
    At least that's what I have listed in my records.

    Daniel did not make many 76mm creations. This is perhaps one of his most interesting examples from 2006...

    @dcarr Thank you for posting on this site. We need more folks like you here. Can you help? What would it take to bring back some of the great members this site has lost. I know I'm putting you on the spot but it's important to me and others.

    Interesting, what exactly is tantalum? I'd like to know more about this piece.

    Tantalum (Ta) Atomic Number 73

    Tantalum is a chemical element that finds use in four areas: high-temperature applications, such as aircraft engines; electrical devices, such as capacitors; surgical implants and handling corrosive chemicals. It is rarely used as an alloying agent because it tends to make metals brittle. Tantalum resists corrosion and is almost impervious to chemical attack, for this reason it has been employed in chemical industry, e.g. for heat exchanger in boilers where strong acids are vaporized. It was discovered in 1802 but not refined in a pure form until 1906.

    Daniel uses quite a few allegorical components in the design of his 2006 centennial medal. The medal is 76 mm, .995 pure Tantalum clad copper. These were 'test strikes' with two slightly different obverse designs and the same reverse. There were two finishes for each design, Satin and Semi Proof-like. This example is Semi Proof-like and the most common version with mintage of 2. Each of the other versions & finishes have a mintage of 1.

    Hope the information was helpful.

    Have been thinking of using some of the new slabs myself and really like yours, especially with the Semi-PL finish for this year. Very nice!

    This site has a nice format, but it seems to be generally the most hostile environment of the various coin forums that I visit (this particular thread excepted).
    If I were running it, I would moderate it differently (although that is not a job that I would really want myself).

    Bob and Picken, those coppers look mighty fine. I like that Matron. I have 1 each of the 1815's on order. Can't wait to get mine.
