Fresh From The Mint! The 1932 Silver Dollar.
Inserted in the horn button is "1932" Peace Dollar.
It's a real silver dollar!
Sitting on top of the custom-built sifter is brushed aluminum
ball from Gennie Shifter. If you've never heard of a Zune, it's sort of
like an i-Pod and can store songs, video, pictures, etc. By installing a
custom docking station wired to the roadsters speakers, we avoided having
to install bulkier conventional car stereo equipment. When not in use, the
docking station flips up under the dash.
"Introduced in December of 1921, the Peace dollar, designed
by medalist Anthony de Francisci, was promulgated to commemorate the signing
of formal peace treaties between the Allied forces and Germany and Austria.
These treaties officially ended the Allies' World War I hostilities with
these two countries. In 1922 the Mint made silver dollar production its
top priority, causing other denominations to be produced sparingly if at
all that year. Production ceased temporarily after 1928; original plans
apparently called for only a one year suspension, but this was extended
by the Great Depression. Mintage resumed in 1934, but for only two years."
Because of the suspension in minting during the Great Depression,
there are no "1932" Peace Dollars. This Peace Dollar is real,
but has had the date altered to match the year of the car.
