1971 D Triple TH Die Clash?

Post by stldanceartist » Wed Aug 20, 2014 12:02 pm

Good morning everyone!

I posted this yesterday, but the thread has mysteriously disappeared...so I'm thinking it got lost in whatever site updates were happening. Let's try this again.

I found this really cool 1971 D Ike with what looks like a Triple Talon Head die clash. I can't really find another instance of this pattern happening, so I thought I'd post it here and get some information/thoughts/opinions. (Fair disclosure - I've already gotten some feedback over at CoinTalk - the recommendation is to send it to ANACS for attribution and grading.)

I have done my best with the camera/lighting equipment at hand. The photos aren't perfect, but they should be good enough. :)

Upon closer inspection, this coin might also have a Moon Line...(didn't know that existed until just now...) What do you think?

What do you think? Triple TH? Rarity? Approximate grade? Approximate Value?

(Just trying to gauge how excited I should be for picking this out of a pile of basically face value coins...)

That's a great clash. I haven't seen one with a spread like that and that crisp in a long time. As far as value, I 'd put it at a whopping $25.00; I don't see the coin as anything more that a MS64 from your pictures, and the entire world could care less about a clashed Ike unless you're an actual Ike collector - and know what you're looking at.

That being said, it's a REALLY neat/nice example of a triple talon head clash with what I would call a huge spread - makes it fairly unique. Often times the spread is that small that the clashes overlap one another. Hang on to it and enjoy it.

Thanks for posting.

Do you mind explaining in a bit more detail exactly what you think may be responsible for the clashes (which reverse devices?) on this particular coin?

So far, then, this coin has:

*Triple Talon Head with a very wide spread
*Moon Line
*Hair Lip (pointed out by Rick Stachowski over at CT...I didn't even see it!)

The clash comes from the area between the Eagle's talons on the reverse. Take a look at our site here: http://hermes.csd.net/~coneca/content/T ... h32007.pdf. It's an old writing at this point, but Figure 1 will give you what you need to see to understand.
