1884 CC cancelled die overstrikes.
Don Schmitz was the first to overstrike the cancelled die 1884 CC Morgan dollar to raise money to renovate the CC building. (More on that here http://goccf.com/t/90896#752839 ) Pictured below are a few examples of the souvenirs he created after finding the cancelled dies while doing the renovations to the old Carson City Mint. (The home of the Nevada State Museum)
It's my belief Don used cancelled 1878 CC reverse dies while Dan used 1879-1893 CC reverse dies.


Struck on oversized 2-ounce blanks.


Daniel Carrs gold 1884 CC cancelled die strike with matching die pair # 37.



Same #37 die set overstrike by Moonlight Mint.



Have a good day and enjoy!

Just started learning of Dan Carr the last year. I share a birthdate with JFK and was the same age as John John. I am told that as a child his assassination affected me greatly. I didn't learn of Dan Carr in time to get the 1963 half dollar (I hope to get one someday), but for now I have this. Apologies for the amateur photos.

1792-1992

This piece was commissioned by a distributor in August of 2020 it celebrates the 200th anniversary of the U.S. mint.

The Walking Liberty obverse is based on A. Weinman's '86 Silver Eagle the reverse depicts the 1976 bicentennial Drummer Boy by Jack L. Ahr, over-struck on a U.S. mint American Silver Eagle.





Enjoy!

@Chopped Triumphs: Thanks for posting the US Mint 200th commemorative piece!

I always enjoy the chance to see Mr. Carr's lesser-known works.

You have assembled quite a collection of his medals!

You're very welcome Commems !

This particular one has a high mintage, I'm surprised it's not seen as much.

I still don't have the one that brought me down this rabbit hole.

Enjoy everyone!

That is a missed oppurtunity by the mint

It wasn't completely missed:

- 1992-93 US Mint Bicentennial Commemoratives

I've got one he designed for the NCM and another that I'm not sure if it's his design or not. Can't find any info on it.
