"1970" Eisenhower Dollar fantasy issue, Copper-Nickel Clad, Satin Finish, MS-67, Only 108 Minted
Out of stock
Item Number: mm_0100_1970_A
Premium quality, individually-handled, consistent with MS-67 grade. The obverse shows some moderate (shallow) concentric rings.
Some evidence of underlying host coin design will likely show somewhere, such as forehead,
front of neck, back of neck, and/or Eagle's head. Housed in a non-PVC "flip" holder with
certificate. Final mintage: 108.
The US Mint produced Eisenhower Dollars from 1971 to 1978. Although Frank Gasparro prepared a galvano model dated "1970", no coins with that date were ever released. These are over-struck on genuine
Eisenhower dollars, they have the correct weight (no metal is added or removed), correct metallic content (no heating or melting is performed),
and correct diameter. Even the number of reeds on the edge (189) is correct. And to top it off, all the
over-strikes are privately and painstakingly performed using a surplus Denver Mint coin press !
NOTE: Defacing of US coins is legal so long as the defacement isn't for fraudulent purposes.
By purchasing one or more of these coins, 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 coins could result in criminal and/or civil fraud charges. In other words, don't
even think about trying to sell these to unaware buyers as original 1970 Eisenhower dollars !
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 since the overstrike is usually not perfectly aligned with the original strike.
Do not attempt to use these as legal tender.

Great coin. Added it to an extra spot in the Dansco album, looks good. What a fun coin to add to the BU album.
