    I saw that as well. That's a lot of value to be sitting on at $300 a pop. They just showed up for sale a day or so ago.

    I wonder if there isn't a volume or contract buyer out there?

    I'd never even heard of Daniel Carr before I started hanging out here with you hoodlums, now I have another bad habit! (I'm up to 4 Carrs - just bought the Glendale Barber Zombuck in copper, the other 3 are silver) Here's some pics with other exonumia (some of which I bought here from some of our esteemed member fellow collectors - thank you!) Don't mind the dog hair! IMG_4304b.JPG IMG_4303b.JPG IMG_4302b.JPG IMG_4300b.JPG ;)

    Thanks for resurrecting this great thread. I lost track of it.

    I do have a couple of "rarities" to share tonight.

    The strikes themselves aren't unusually rare, but the hand signed sets - now those are really difficult to find.

    The first set, is a 1 of 50 sets of the 2010 USNA Trade Dollar series. Hand signed and listed in Daniel Carr's production blog.

    Now the second set, this one is undocumented in Dan Carr's production blog. The 2001-D Bessie Coleman strikes were in serious competition against Sacagawea for the US's first "Golden Dollar."

    Even though this sets hand signed certificate states "#8 of 100", research on the website SMALLDOLLARS.COM document that only twenty total hand signed sets were ever produced.

    So, this is set #8 of 20 . . . . . . . . - @MWallace is the creator of the site.

    I hope I have these facts correct.

    After posting the "undocumented" Bessie Coleman set above, Daniel Carr updated his production blog to include mention of these . . . . .

    Woo Hoo! They are fully documented now!

    How on Earth was it legal for him to make that?

    It says “One Dollar” on it so isn’t that counterfeiting US currency even if no
    1964 Morgans were minted?

    They print 'one dollar' on kids funny money. Is that counterfeiting?

    That’s a bit different though since:

    1). They usually write “not valid as legal tender” or something similar.

    2). They look nothing like real money and no one could ever mistake funny money for real money.

    Whereas that Morgan Dollar fantasy coin is a reproduction of an actual coin and has no markings anywhere indicating it’s a fantasy piece.

    The date is the marking indicating it's a fantasy piece.

    I knew someone was going to say that, but the fact is most people know nothing about Morgan dollars. If you walked up to a random person and asked them when the Mint stopped making Morgan Dollars they would have no clue.

    Not to mention most people don’t look at the date on coins before spending them.

    I just think he should have put “replica” or “reproduction” or “not legal tender” somewhere on the coin. Even if it was on the edge around the coin like the 5 oz ATB quarters.

    So, look into the maker and his methods.

    The underlying host coin IS legal tender and was created as such. It's just been artistically altered to reflect something different much as hobo nickels have been.

    It's not a .999 silver round. It actually is a Morgan Dollar produced by the US Mint.

    Oh. Well in that case if it’s made from an actual Morgan Dollar I retract my statement.

    I thought it was a privately made replica like this one except with a “1964” instead of SMI.

  15. The US Mint is still making Morgan dollars:

    Okay, I've been chomping at the bit like an old mule to show these when they arrived.

    Now that they're here, wooo boy, are these ever cool . . . . .

    I need to take better photos, but didn't want to wait.
