It has been a great summer, I am glad collecting season is
I see in going over this thread again with starting up research
into the Golfer on the moon Ike's. That I never addressed
A very valid comment from DVCollector.
In all honesty, I doubt Gasparro would make an unauthorized design change--and wouldn't it have to be added to the hub? I doubt he worked on individual dies.
In a thread by AAron Miller he had posted photos of the
June 1971 COINage Pictures of the Prototype Eisenhower Dollar
If one clicks on the picture they will get a full sized version
of the photo. And the Golfer is fairly visible in the photo.
Picture Number 3 in the threadhttp://forum2.ikegroup.info/viewtop...rticle#p4495
Also in the Ike Group Article named REPORT OF A PROTOTYPE IKE PROOF
3/4 of the way down the page are pictures of the
Eisenhower Museum's 1970 Galvano of the Eisenhower dollar Obverse
Though the picture can not be enlarged the image is still visible and is more in line with the Golf flag
found on later date Eisenhowers
At least with reading glasses for me.http://ikegroup.info/prototype.htm
And a close up of the area with Golf Flag
on the Galvanohttp://ikegroup.info.customers.tige...age00415.jpg
I believe this goes higher up the minting process than individual
dies. Because it is found on the Prototype And The Coins Galvano
I hope this helps
Very Sorry for the lateness of the clarification. Summer time comes
and Serious research in coins gets put on the back burner.
I completely understand that Extraordinary Claims
Require Extraordinary Evidence
