My Daniel Carr Fantasy O/S Ikes

Post by FS-801 » Fri Jun 22, 2018 9:14 pm

I have two fantasy overstrike Ikes from Daniel Carr: 1970 40% Silver (Pie Pair 4 - Satin Finish) and 1975 CuNi (Die Pair 1 - ANACS MS69). So, who else here has some of these restrikes in their collection? If you do, please share! :D

I really enjoy these. His work is outstanding. I assume he uses a scanner on an original and then does his changes to the model prior to cutting the die.

We have a link to his Ike mintage on our homepage under Links: http://www.moonlightmint.com/blog_3.htm

Here are all 10 die varieties, including the two Matte coins that have low mintage. I didn't bother with the obverses since my lighting isn't good at this time of day.

Who slabbed the first coin? That has all the necessary information on it. I'd like ANACS to slab these, but they clearly have lost the finish, which is critical to establish what the coin is. The first one even has population.

I slabbed the "1970" myself using a Premiere Coin World holder. I created the labels in PS CS5, along with the TrueView-type image. For my labels, I include a photo of the actual coin. I did the same thing with the 1964-D Morgan dollar issues from Carr.

Also, a while back I shared this "1979" Ike I created in PS on a CCF topic concerning his overstrikes. The idea was to "inspire" Mr. Carr to produce a fantasy '79 Ike since he was actively posting there. He may yet still do one. Hoping.... :mrgreen:

Love it! :D
I'd buy one.
Love your home-made slabs. My Carr Ikes are still in their flips. Never got around to slabbing them.
One day.......

Happy Hunting!

I don't have all (10) of Carr's Ikes.
I only have the (8) "Regular" ones. I missed out on the (2) Limited Edition Proof ones.
However, I did manage to snag one of his very few 1975 40% Silver Satin Finish "Multiple-Struck" ones:

I LOVE IKE Errors! Especially on Fantasy Ikes! :D

Happy Hunting!

I didn't know he made any proof Ikes! :o Were they dated "1970" or "1975?" Are there photos of these two that you know of? I'm still hoping for a "1979" eventually. If he does decide to do it, I wonder if there will also be a proof version???? :idea:

How much were the "multiple struck" Ikes when he offered them? I missed out on ALL of his Ike offerings because I had only started collecting in the summer of 2011. I was mainly into Morgans at first. I got serious about Ikes sometime in 2012, and I found out about the Carr fantasy Ikes some time later.

He made (2) "Matte Finishes" in very limited editions of the 1970 Die pair 4.
(5) were made in the 40% Silver version
(13) were made in the Copper-Clad version (4 were sold on eBay $340-$380 each).
Looks like Andy was able to land one of each! :shock:

Great job!
Brian
