I still have to go through the rest of the Eisenhowers with a fine tooth comb to find Peg Legs and hopefully one more 1972 Type 2 coin.

Called the bank that I got them from just a few minutes ago to say thanks again. She told me that she will ask every week if there are more Bags of Ike's to order.

I hope I tapped into a vein, because going through those Ike's is a trill!

More updates and pics tonight

If you do get more bags, let us know what you do with them. I know the coin counters at my bank aren't made to handle Ikes so if I were to ever be able to get a bag I am unsure what I would do with the rest... $1000 is a lot to hold on to. Very nice for you though!

I have wrappers, so I guess I'll have to wrap them and return them to another bank. I'm going to keep them unless the bank calls me again and says they have more bags.

Ah right forgot some banks (never any that I have gone to ever) take the rolls back. Mine have to all be run through a coin machine so that may be just my problem then...

Astonishing Score!

I've been trying for a while to get Ike. I took in the forum that I stumbled across through this thread hoping that might help her. I'm hoping the box of cookies I brought in will help convince her as well :D

Any advice in trying to get my banker to order them?

I've found a lot of Eisenhower Bicentennial Type 1 Coins. All of them are Denver Mint. I just found a Type 1 without a mint which means its from Philly. Is this a rare coin?

Pretty sure it's a roughly 50/50 split between Type I and II. The current theory is that Type I was made in 1975; Type II in 1976. Not sure if there is any overlap however.

I've never found a Type 1 Philly Bicentennial in circulation. I read somewhere once (can't remember where) that those were only issued in the 1975 mint sets. So that might give some credibility that the Type 1 Bicentennial Ikes are your "1975" ones.

Oldest circulation finds: Cent 1902; 3CN 1867; Nickel (Buffalo/no date); Dime 1914; Quarter 1876; Half 1936; Dollar 1900; Banknote 1928 $2; Foreign 1917 3d (United Kingdom)

I have yet to read about a 1975 mint set with a Variety 2 dollar, or a 1976 mint set with a Variety 1 dollar, so as far as I am concerned, this is true. However, it is possible some Variety 2 dollars were minted at the end of 1975, which would be totally legal because of how the coins are dated. That they never made into any of the mint sets does not eliminate the possibility.

Nope, more than half were issued for circulation. There were 1,921,488 mint sets in 1975 and 4,019,000 Philadelphia minted Variety 1 Dollars.

well I know now that it isn't too rare. I've found 4 1976 Type 1's without a mint mark (Philly Mint).
