All - I'm confused about the difference between 1976 dollar coins - Type 1 vs Type 2.

I found this resource: https://eisenhowerdollarguide.com/1...r-varieties/

It would lead me to believe that the lettering on the reverse of the coin is what determines Type 1 vs. Type 2. "Bold, block lettering" is Type 1 whereas "thinner, more elegant" lettering is Type 2. I have both types of dollars and have seen the difference between the two lettering styles in person.

I'm confused by this slab, though, labeled Type 1:




The lettering seems clearly to be the "thinner, more elegant" style, and yet PCGS calls it Type 1. Are the types different for proof coins? Or is it incorrectly labeled?

I'm probably just missing something obvious - - would appreciate someone pointing out where I'm confused...

Most likely a labeling mistake, it happens.

I agree, that looks like it has the incorrect label.

Thanks all - looks like it is incorrectly labeled.

And advantage or disadvantage to having PCGS correct it? Will they even do that?

PCGS will correct it for free, and may even pay the shipping but I can't guarantee that last part, you would have to ask them about that.

Agree on the mislabeling. I see they designated the coin DCAM, but can't tell from the photos if that is right. You might want to be sure that part is correct, too.

Stay well,

Thanks all - appreciate it.

There is more cameo than the photos would suggest, but it's definitely not the strongest cameo finish I've ever seen. And given one label error, there certainly could be another. If I send it back, I wonder if I "risk" the grade. Will likely send it back to them out of curiosity about how they will handle it more than anything.

Just thought I would close the loop on this.

I did end up contacting PCGS and having them correct the error, more out of curiosity than anything. A couple notes on the process:

-contacting them by phone was incredibly irritating and took over a week. The process is you call and put your number in the queue for a call back that day. If you don't call first thing in the morning, they will be full up for the day. If you miss the call back, or are on another call, you have to try again the next day.
-they had me send pictures
-they emailed back a week later or so indicating that yes, it was an error on their part and they would correct it
-they emailed me a FedEx label and had me submit the slab with an order form marked "mechanical error"
-I received the corrected slab back this past weekend, just under three months later
-the slab has the same cert number and the same grade but is now "gold shield," which I guess is some kind of a slight upgrade

Anyway - long process but in the end it didn't cost me anything and they corrected the error

Thank you for the follow-up! So glad it all worked out for you, other than a long passage of time.
