Mulan retired elongated coin cancellation detail



The Mulan Canceled Coins Auctioned by Disneyland
Via Disney Auctionears in 2005

The three dies in the Mulan set were each canceled by a Tinker Bell image which was etched in the field of each die. A "RETIRED" backstamp was also used by Disney when they pressed these canceled coins. The Mulan dies were then etched with the word "Retired" over the gripper and sold by Disney Auctionears. The new owner pressed ten cents, nickels and dimes with this added mark (Type 2 coins). None have backstamps. A vertical coin ridge on the CDL0122 type 2 coins is evidence of a crack.

Coins with backstamps that read "Retired", but, have no "Retired" at the grip, are Type 1 coins. If your coin has the small "Retired" at the grip and no backstamp, it is one of the scarce type 2 coins.

Happy Collecting,
Boomer

This is a close up of the Tinker Bell stamp used to cancel the DL0121, DL0122 and DL0123 Mulan pressed penny set. For clarification we have added an outline of a similar Tinker Bell image to the left of the canceling mark.
This is a representative image of the Tinker Bell canceling mark used on this set of coins. However, each coin type in this set may have a slightly different canceling mark as each coin type has a separate and slightly unique engraving or etching. (See also CDL0121-123 type 2 coins.)
