1971S Nightcrawler

Post by AndyO » Sat Jul 13, 2013 8:30 pm

I thought we had a seperate thread on this previously, but apparently not. So, I'm starting one.

I sent one in the other week for restoration service at PCGS and they did a real nice job on it, as it was really fouled up with I don't know what on the surface. It's not the most spectacular grade, but, it turned out far better than what it looked like when I submitted it.

Thought I'd post the picture for those interested in locating one.

I agree. These are tough!

The one I sent in got a 66DCAM as well.

Great coin, like Brian and Lee said, a tough one to find.
Is this one that people still aren't looking for, or do we think that it is that rare that there really aren't that many of them left to find? Are there any population numbers of known examples?
Thanks for sharing!

For the past few years, I have been and continue to be on the look-out for the nightcrawler. I have been unsuccessful. They are that rare. With Lee's additional specimen, there are now 7 known examples.
I'll always keep searching. (The nightcrawler, BTW, has a serif-R obverse)

Steve, I've had this one for 2 or 3 years - just in case that influences your count.

My bad, I needed only to look at the original post and see that we are discussing Andy's coin. :oops:
I'm was going off Brian's count and figured that there was one more to add. If brian had been counting this specimen, I guess we're still at 6 known examples.

I have reliable information that the nightcrawler census is up by two to 8 known pieces. The two were found in one purchased lot!!! These are not the pending ones from ILIKEIKES.
