Missed opportunities: 1995-W silver American Eagle a stopper

The outcry was so great that Daniel Carr, owner of a private mint, helped satisfy demand by over-striking non-Proof 2009 bullion silver American Eagles (with no Mint marks), creating a Proof-like appearance, and using a “DC” Mint mark that also stood for the initials of his name. Carr has not produced any more since 2010.

Another hobbyist issue arose in 2011 with the release of the silver American Eagle 25th Anniversary set. The maximum mintage was 100,000. The sets sold out in less than five hours. I was not able to use the online ordering system to secure a set. 

I still do not have one.
