Cameo proof-like high-grade finish.

No Peace dollars were minted for circulation after 1935. In 1936 the US Mint began selling proof sets which included a cent, nickel, dime, quarter-dollar, and half-dollar. This “1936” proof-like fantasy Peace represents a “what if ?” scenario had the US Mint produced Peace Dollars for one more year and included them in the 1936 proof sets. These have a high relief obverse like the 1921 issue, and a true high relief reverse. No proof-like Peace Dollars were produced by the US Mint. One reason is that the sculpts had uneven fields and not a constant-radius dish like Morgan Dollars had. For example, the Peace Dollar obverse sculpt has a trough along the back of Liberty’s neck. That trough is a high point on the dies and would be polished off if the dies were lapped for a proof-like finish. For this fantasy issue the fields were modified to have a constant-radius basin, which allowed die polishing for a cameo proof-like appearance. Due to excessive forces required to over-strike existing low-relief coins and impart a high-relief proof-like finish, the dies quickly developed some “cartwheel” luster (also known as “mint bloom”). Regardless, all pieces have a “Cameo” proof-like appearance.

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 date.

Since these are over-struck on existing coins, there may be faint evidence of the original coin design showing since the over-strike is usually not perfectly aligned with the original strike.

I can't keep from staring at it. It is so beautifully done with nice luster, no marks, and deep relief. I mean, I would not expect less with a Dan Carr piece but this was how Peace Dollars were meant to look. I wish I had all the Peace Dollar varieties.
Nice example of Dan's work
