I think we just paid for our new house.

We just bought a box of coins today from an estate sale about 20 miles from here that had items that belonged to a NJ Congressman. He was in Congress from 1959 to 1977.

Well, Susan was going through the coins and I thought she was having a heart attack... Check out what was in there! She can't even talk right now, let alone type.



I can't believe it.

Hmmmmm. This would be an extremely valuable coin if you can sell it and it's real. The feds have said they intend to confiscate any that ever show up. You may want to contact someone who can authenticate it quietly and/ or retain counsel.
Time don't fly, it bounds and leaps.

Bobby and Susan, I think your ship just came in! Congratulations! (Well, at least until it's authenticated. Fingers crossed!)

What exactly makes this coin special? The V in trust?

If the coin is real, and you become multi-millionaires, will you still maintain the forum?

When I first read this, I thought you were joking. You aren't, are you?

If it's real, will you be allowed to keep it?

You are great people, I hope it's not a joke, and I hope it's real.

Morganiere,
All Peace dollars have the "V" in Trust. What makes this potentially so special is the date. They were not regularly minted after 1935. The story goes that some were minted in 1964 to use up silver stores (1965 began the use of clad coinage in American "silver" coins) Some were given to select politicians and other officals "on the sly". All were supposed to have been destroyed(and/or confiscated). Some supposedly slipped by the melting. If this is real, it would be a remarkable find.

Bobby, is there a "D" mintmark on the reverse below the one? See the statistics and story below.I put these tidbits together from several blogs on google. I could not figure out the original authors as most were reprints. (many of the stories have very conflicting information). I pray that Bobby and Susan snagged a real one!They really deserve it.... Mike

1964-D
Mintage 316,076
POPULATION REPORT.....0*
*All of these were believed to have been destroyed before they were released to the public.

1964 Peace dollar
At the Denver mint, in order to begin using the stock pile of silver, several hundred thousand 1964 Peace dollars were made at the Denver Mint in the "trolley building" across the street to the west of the current mint building. They were coined in great secrecy and only during the day shift. One day the workers came to a locked up work place and were forced to sign an affidavit indicating that they had never worked on this project and knew nothing about these '64 Peace dollars, in effect, that their work of several weeks never happened.

All of the '64 Peace dollars were supposedly melted down. Though security was much less efficient then, a current mint official(this was posted in 1994?) who was working on the project at the time thinks that very few ever left the building. However, this official(name not disclosed) does believe that some got out into the hands of various officials and the like, because, "There were often calls from senators and state officials, and others like the Mayor of Denver, seeking copies." The official said he feels there are "probably 6 or so" somewhere out there that were not melted. Others have said that there are as many as a 2 or 3 bags.

Coin "doctors" sometimes make them in the following manner. They Take the 4 from a common 1924 and the 6 from a common 1926, put them on a high grade 1923D, do some "coin magic" blending them together and end up with a 1964. Some "Copies" are available for under $40.00
