1922 Peace Dollar with 1993 Peace Accord Stamp

My father passed away and I am trying to get any information about this unique coin.

It is a 1922 Liberty dollar, with a stamp in the reverse of a 1993 Middle East Peace accord with 2 doves.

Any info would be great

    There's a lot of misinformation on the internet about this issue, such as only 50 made,etc.

    As the design indicates, it commemorates a Middle East peace treaty.

    Mel Wacks made a lot of similar counterstamped coins including one for this event, but yours is not one of his.

    I have one just like yours, but I am not up on the current values.

    Does it have any special value above the silver weight?

    Are the camp David coins indistinguishable from the copies?.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Yes, it does have value beyond its weight in silver. It is a specialty niche and someone here will likely know a ballpark estimate of value.

    @FireAce75 ... Welcome aboard. Probably some collectors will pay a premium, I do not know how much value it will bring. Try researching closed auctions on ebay. Cheers, RickO

    Absolutely wild guess on rough value would be somewhere between $75 and $300. It does not sell for as much as the Mel Wacks issue, but it is still very collectable.

    You need to find the people who collect these, though. Somewhere like ebay is your best bet. And make sure you use the term "counterstamp" and maybe also "countermark" in order for the right people to find it in searches.

    I have this one I've owned for a number of years. I don't think I paid more than $150 or so then.
