How can you distinguish them from cleaning then? I am having this discussion in another thread. It is getting harder and harder for me to distinguish a coin from a harsh cleaning to a die or planchette issue.


It can be difficult to tell sometimes. If the lines are parallel, run through the devices, and appear on both obverse and reverse (in manner illustrated by coop's pic), I'd rule out a polished die or cleaning. Plus, a polished die will leave lines in relief.

Road kill
Slang for a coin that looks like it spent some time on a road repeatedly being run over by cars and trucks.


which would explain the striated lines in the coin and maybe even the toning ;)

What? You're selling both of them?

Actually, for being downunder, I think I have a pretty good collection of Ikes. Only need 2 to complete the set. :)

According to PCGS, a MS67+ is worth $6,500. https://www.PCGS.com/pricehistory#/?=7416-67+
Still, seems steep when a MS66 is $150 and a MS66+ is $500.

well that will sell a few slabs for them. When I read that, I put zero value on that accessment, even if it is backed up with auction results. Its just a warped market based on conditional rarity bid up by a few buyers and it ignores the broader market.

Excellent! Sounds like you're ahead of me, but I am caught up in searching for varieties, die events and other such things in the series.

What Ikes are you still needing?

That is one of the interesting things about collecting Ikes. They are so badly made that it is a field day for variety and error collectors. I actually collect them because I like the design :)

Out of my price range. I would not be able to buy coins for 3-4 years if bought something Ike that.

I have my complete set of Ikes with all the type 1, 2, 3, blue envelope, brown box, bicentennial type 1, 2, peg leg and friendly eagle. Did I miss any? if so, I'm not quite complete.

Shhh! Don't say that too loudly. There are many here that would vehemently disagree. (And that's OK.) I agree with you. I consider the design quintessential mid-century America. The great WW2 general and post-war president, backed with the insignia from the crowning technological achievement of the era. It's a design of its time.

That's a very nice set, in my opinion. Congrats on pulling it together.

If so inclined, you can always go down the Ike rabbit hole and seek out the die clashes, doubled dies a few RPMs and the various peggers. But beware!

Hi Cladboy,
I don't collect varieties, but I have ended up with varieties I and II of the 1972 Philadelphia coin. The only 2 I need now are the 1973D and 1973S.

I think this is my favourite...
