Dan Carr certainly makes some great fantasy overstrikes, but he has also produced some excellent medals for coin clubs through the years. Post your favorites. Here is one of mine. Love that Peace Dollar obverse design.....

    Is that a D.C. Piece? Ngc is grading them now? Regardless it's a very nice medal!

    Wow. A Carr in top 2 plastic. I wonder why NGC didn't at least put the weight and maybe finess too on them though. Now if only our hosts would begin even at an ungraded generic level. It would be a start. I really do like what ANACS does with them though... ICG not so much :-1:

    The more you VAM..

    Agree 100%. A generic PCGS holdered Dan Carr Medal would be a sight to behold for sure ! Perhaps some day.......

    This showed up to day. On the edge it looks like it's stamped "Bob Muckeye McKay

    I didn't know they were edge inscribed. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I did find out that he was a member of the club that had passed away, so they put his name on the tokens in his honor.
    His name was not put on the over strikes.

    I really like Dan's work. I am a member of the Knights of the Coin Table forum and can validate that statement above about Muckeye. He did pass away and we had his name placed on the edge as a tribute. It was not done on the over strikes as noted above.

    Is anyone interested in the 2016 KOTCT over strikes? I've got an extra of the Morgan Dollar overstrike (mintage 21) and the 40% Silver IKE overstrike (mintage 11) I would let go of. shoot me a PM.

    NGC also did a number of Sample Slabs for the Sarasota Coin Club . There was singles in brass (Goldine), silver and copper and a three piece slab . Very small edition of I think 40 pieces each in the slabs .

    Check out the one that Dan did a few years back in remembrance of Gary Burke . It's a gorgeous piece with Gary's portrait in the clouds and below is a giant sea turtle.
    Quite a tribute !!

    Here is what the three piece set looks like as I had it here at the house .
    The singles actually say SAMPLE on them . I'm not sure if I kept any of them after securing the three piece set, but if I do I'll let you know .


    I want that!
