They arrived yesterday and are now nestled in a nice cozy slab
OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT! TC
This one finally arrived. Only 1,000 of these sequentially numbered pieces were minted as a Lesher house restoration fund raising effort by the ANA in 1985. I was exceedingly fortunate to have secured a low number, really clean example - #139.
Here is more information on this issue, in case you ever run across one.
Thought Dan Carr aficionado's would enjoy . . . . .
Reminds me of these.
I've been able to get a few of the KOTCT notgeld's, but these look cool as well . . . .
Move it or lose it.
I like the design on that $100 Union, but... not $240 worth, I'm afraid.
And I'm super-nervous about the dollar denomination marked on it. I know the Norfed case hung in part on "intent to create a competing currency", but minting something denominated in dollars, not overstruck on a real coin of the same denomination, and not bearing a "COPY" or "Not legal tender" stamp -- that seems like begging for trouble, doesn't it?
They've been out there for at least three years now with nary a peep that I've heard of . . . . .
Truth be told, I have a growing affinity for Dan Carr's designs bearing "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" identifiers on them in lieu of the UNA / USNA identifiers. I like the "Dollars" over the "Ameros" as well.
I know his fantasy coins are all marked as such, I just like his original designs with these "mottos" a little more.
Maybe I am an outlier or renegade. I have a couple en-route to me. Sellers photos didn't do them justice, so I'll wait to take pichers of my own . . . .
I guess these two will have to hold me, until I get "the e-mail" . . . . . . .
It's not in my hands yet, but I do have the sellers photos.
Yeah, it's a Daniel Carr piece . . . .
Only Dan Carr aficionados will "get it" I fear . . . .
