1972 BUS Crash!

Post by Irish2ice » Tue Mar 27, 2012 3:47 am

Hey Guys! I have looked all over the site and couldn't find this particular clash. It is a 1972-P Type-1 MS65 with, IMO a grade B, "UDU" clash with a "dot" above and between W and E that is a definitive die marker. It's also has a grade A double volunteer which I noticed first.

BUT, it also has BUS clashed from PLURIBUS below and into Ike's neck. I apologize for the poor pictures!....I did the best I could!

Let me know what you guys think!


If you magnify this picture, you can barely see the UDU and can really see the dot above WE. You can also see the double volunteer and BUS crash to the left of the volunteer!

Again and closer, just to the left of the double volunteer and above the 2 you will see the "S" clash. To the left of the S is the stronger clashed U, and then the weakest B clash.

Nice pic of the BUS crash!

OUTSTANDING FIND!

That's the kind of stuff I love to see. Great find! Off the top of my head, I can't say I've actually seen that clash before.

Thanks Andy! I was getting a complex since no one had responded. I wasn't actually in the market for a 72-P T1 MS65 since I already had a really nice example, but when I saw this :o I almost fell over.

Bob, terrific find, congratulations!

I assume you've named this clash image "BUS Crash"? Great name! Will be in V1 along with Brian's "Golfer" and a few other cool finds. Rob

Wow Rob, that's great and I am truly honored.

I liked "BUS Crash" because of the play on words..(crash vs clash), so if you and the rest of the Ike Group like it, feel free to keep it.

I've been curious, has anyone else found any of these?

Yes, but not a 72 T1, and not the full BUS. I just had a second look at most of my clashed Ikes and found three that had a volunteer and a grade C bUs (meaning only the U was visible, and not a strong clash, like yours). I did not see the BUS on any of my other Ikes with clashes present other than the volunteer (as expected). I think it is worth rechecking any Ike with the volunteer clash. Thanks for refreshing this topic.

I have from Bob three 72 T1 Ikes with the BUS Clash and have started to examine them.

Not all that easy to see the BUS, but that was true of many of the clash images when first noticed.

For me the easiest marker seems to be a very strong Volunteer clash. There are two fairly prominent reverse markes for this die pair, a small angular cud under the N of ONE and a modest die crack at the top of Ike's head like the bottom of a small skull cap.

I bet Steve is correct that we will find the BUS Clash on 72-D's with a heavy Volunteer image, and possibly on 71-D's.

More to come shortly. Rob
