Item Number: mm_0100_1985dc

Premium quality, individually-handled, consistent with MS-67+ grade. Some evidence of underlying host coin design may be faintly visible. Housed in a non-PVC flip and includes a small certificate. Adolph Weinman Eagle reverse design type.

Each "1985" Weinman Silver Eagle starts out as a US Mint produced Silver Eagle dollar. They are then privately over-struck with template dies to impart the original Adolph Weinman Walking Liberty and Eagle designs that were originally used on the Half Dollar of 1916-1947. A surplus Denver Mint coin press is used in the over-striking process. The "DC" mint mark actually has three meanings: 1) the initials of the producer, Daniel Carr; 2) "D" for surplus Denver Mint coin press; and 3) the "C" is actually a crescent moon representing Moonlight Mint.

NOTE: Defacing of US coins is legal so long as the defacement isn't for fraudulent purposes. By purchasing one or more of these, the buyer agrees to provide full disclosure of their origin when reselling them. Failure to provide potential buyers with complete and accurate information when offering these could result in criminal and/or civil fraud charges. In other words, don't try to sell to unaware buyers as original coins of this type.

The pictures accurately show what the coins look like. No photo editing was performed. There may be subtle differences between coins. Since they are over-struck on existing coins, there may be faint evidence of the original coin design showing.
