Called a "Peg Leg", but is part of die polishing removing the fields and polishing away design. Just common die polishing. The slabbers are the ones making the money on these. The sellers are the ones who enhance the wealth of the slabbers. To me, I pay nothing extra for a slabbed coin. I have a few, but I paid no premium for them.

I agree with you COOP on slabbing coins. My thing with this coin it is the FPL this kind because are 4 variants(PEG LEG) it is is rare peg leg. What is opinion? I find it is rare on IKE group. No others references on this moment. Not many collect IKE dullards.

I collect Ikes, but I have not fully embraced the realm of "minor varieties" yet. I read about them where and when I can, but I am not ready to start adding to the fold at this time.

Here are a couple more pictures. They still are not all that great because my family member did not want me to open the container it is in. If this is the peg leg, is it worth sending in to get certified?

The new photos shown suggest its a standard proof Eisenhower dollar, and not the Prototype.

silviosi, this is a FPL (fading peg leg) due to die polishing, as coop pointed out. The fade became progressively more pronounced the more the die was re-polished. The OP's coin is a moderate example. The more extreme the fade, the more interesting to an Ike collector. If you're not into this series, it's all rather pedestrian.

The 71-S proof I keep looking for is the PPL (partial peg leg) as discussed by Wexler/Crawford/Flynn and also in the Ike Group materials. That seems to be where the challenge lies, with the low projected mintages.

I really appreciate your honesty of what it is your self on collecting and also how a collection could be build. Personally I start like you and then I switch to varieties.

Thank you remind me to take my 2 to 3 KM daily walk like my colleague from Cardio told me. I am glad you are interested in varieties and I welcome you here because is need such members. COOP show the fact or the cause of those Peg Legs and it is right in what it is concern the cause, him never gone more then the cause and it is right.

The follows photo and link will show what me I see from the photos provided, and stand with what I mention before:


For those interested on those PEG LEGS this it is the link:

I do not have DD's but varieties causes by polish. Hard to say how many around or how many are in accumulations or already melted.

If that welcome was directed at me, thank you very much. I enjoy Ikes. The challenge for me in this series is to find higher grade examples. The varieties, various die clashes, etc. are added spice to me. So, I do sometimes get excited - even over those "rather pedestrian" die events, to use my term. The more I learn about this series, I realize there's even more I have to discover. So, if you're ever at a show and see that lone guy pouring over a box of raw Ikes, it might be me.

Yes was addressed to you, except the maybe wrong understand of "pedestrian", but this is nothing. Higher examples? it is a challenge. The IKE series was not well coming by the collationers in time, so the mints do not pay to much attention. It is a fact. For me the Ike dollar was a peace of art of creation but to complicated for the time and the Mint technology was lacking in that time. Today will be a perfect coin.

Some times I come to shows. Not offend like before because many of the old generation past away so the new generation I do not know them well and me I am conservator.

I collect only design varieties till 2000: Dollars (miss 3 on IKE, on the photo I load upper is no" 3,7 and 8), Halves (miss 2) and Quarters (miss 3). Then if I will can stay on this world I want to move to Nickels. Thanks for your replay.

I really love this coin community site, I have learned a lot. But I am still wondering if this particular coin is worth getting certified as a "peg leg" Ike?
