Wow, Darth. Great piece. So you have 18 PCGS-graded '76 Type 1 Ikes?

Thanks! Yes, I do have 18 of these. I'm a sucker for 'em. I'm shooting for 20- a full "roll" to fill a PCGS box. I'm just a little nuts.

My birth year is also 1974, so here's a '74 Ike.

Fantastic!

1974 is the only complete year (all five coins) in my slabbed set so far.

Thanks, jbuck. Actually, all of the Ikes I've been posting were handed down from my father. He had a bunch of them (30 or so). However, I recently bought a graded Ike for my personal collection and hope to share some pics soon.

Speaking of pictures, mine tend to look much better than the ones I post on here. Unfortunately, since the files are too large, the forum image optimizer forces me to dumb them down, which makes them lose sharpness. Even when I sharpen them with the optimizer, they're still fuzzier than my original pics, and sharpening them too much makes them look distorted/worse. I'm working on a new lighting setup and probably need to invest in some good editing software, which will hopefully help, but it's still frustrating.

I actually do use this. It does help, but I still have some learning to do.

Good to hear! With paint.net you should never need to use the CCF optimizer. Just adjust the image size and the adjust the quality (which affects file size) when you save the JPG.

Ok, guys. I was able to cherrypick yet another 1971-D PROOF planchet Ike. The link to the BIN listing is below. The pictures included in this listing are the best I've seen as far as indicators go. This one jumped right out at me! If you're looking for this particular issue on eBay, then this is what you want to see for a dead giveaway..... now start hunting!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-D-1-I....m2749.l2649

I took some additional photos to show just how smooth and glossy these proof planchet 71-D Ikes really are. This one looks exactly like the other 7 I recently found (see page 249).

This shot really shows its proof-like characteristic:


Direct light:


This is how the coin appears in a straight slab shot with indirect light. Look at that BOOMING cartwheel luster! There is only one noticeable mark in the middle of the neck, which looks worse here than it really is. But other than that it is super clean with NO annealing chatter.


And I couldn't help but notice how this coin resembles a reverse proof in this close-up obverse picture from the listing:

What kind of premium is there for the proof planchet Ikes?

I honestly have no idea. These are never listed for what they actually are because most aren't aware of their existence. They simply appear as super bright white GEMS to those selling them. But make no mistake- these PP Ikes look exceptionally different from their "regular" CuNi counterparts. The Ike Group used to attribute them in the past, but they no longer do it mainly because they require an LDS (late die state) example for a definitive diagnosis. I think this proved to be too impractical for their purposes.

They are out there in the wild just waiting to be cherry picked. I got this one for $31 plus shipping. The group of 7 I purchased before were $19.99 each. I've been picking them up as I run across them on the bay, and the price varies from seller to seller, as is usual. All of the PCGS examples I have found are in MS65, although I did get one in an NGC MS66 holder.

But back to your question: I don't think there will be any real premium attached to these until this variety is officially recognized. I can only hope that it will happen some day.

Very interesting information, Darth. Thanks for enlightening those of us who aren't as knowledgeable about Ikes.
