As Phil Robertson would say "happy, happy, happy!" As previously posted, I have accumulated about 1800 Ikes and have begun the search. I have previously found several friendly eagles, moon line die clash, talon heads and volunteers, well, tonight I hit the jackpot (at least for me) finding a "hairlip" and "inverted u" about 10 coins apart in my search of 1971's. I am certain of the "inverted u" (appears to be Grade A since it is visible without a loupe) and pretty certain of the "hairlip" (sort of looks like a Grade A) but would like some confirmation from the experts out there. Thanks!
Quote: Where can I find a list of the Ike errors? The ikegroup site tells you what the errors are, but I don't see them listed by year. For instance, what years can you find the hair lip and you errors?
Different things can happen on most years. If you looking for die wear/cracks/chips/breaks/cuds/clashes/struck through grease/ they are events that a die goes through as they age. I consider an error as a one time event. Wrong planchets/off center strikes/double strikes/capped dies/mirror brockage/low pressure strikes/partial collar/broadstrikes/brokerage/split planchets/incomplete planchets/struck through scrap, wire, cloth, staples/large laminations (both pieces)/split planchets/tapered planchets/unplated planchets/missing clads/deep die caps and ETC. These usually only happen one time. So they are rare. These I call errors. There are also die varieties, year varieties and others that are collectables. So read here and see what is out there. Do a search for topic discussed and you will have a wider picture. Or get my DVD and you can see what is out there and know what to watch for. (Just read my signature line for more information. )
