Daniel Carr's 1910 Indian Cent

This was the first Daniel Carr piece I bought. Like other Moonlight Mint fantasies, these were overstruck on real coins - in this case real Indian Head cents.  

I had seen his earlier 1964 Peace Dollar advertised, but I was not actively collecting at that time and it seemed expensive, so I passed it by. I wish now that I had not, so when I saw this issue, I ordered immediately.

There were no Indian Head cents made in 1910 and no cents at the Denver Mint until 1911.  The mintage of these fantasies was 432 in total and 132 of those were the die state shown above. 

Note:  All my coins are in a safe deposit box.  I keep nothing in my home.
