Unlisted doubling on 1971-S?

Post by twitcherroo » Sun Nov 05, 2017 12:44 am

I picked up 4 proof silver IKE"s today for just under spot. One of the 1971-S's shows something on the motto that didn't look like any of the varieties listed on this site. Is this something or nothing at all? Any thoughts at all are appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe

Tripple die obverse, nice coin.

There's LOTS of 71S proof Ikes with various degrees of doubling that are not cataloged here. It would literally take someone a decade to do them all. I bet we're lucky if we have even have 5% of them identified.

Andy - thanks. It's amazing to me that every time you put one of these under the scope there's something to find. Certainly makes them interesting to search through.

Question for you - when you find a coin like this, one that's maybe more interesting that a standard coin but also not an identified variety, what do you do with it? I assume the default is to label it and keep it separate, but is there anything else to do?

Thanks,
Joe

I just label the flip and store with the other hundreds of Ike anomalies...

A "decade"?

I think that this a very generous estimate since many. many folks have tried but simply got over whelmed by the shear volume of DDO's and DDR's.

There are literally hundreds of DD's and all in various stages of die wear and die refurbishment. Einstein would struggle under the weigh of cataloging them all.

I entertained the thought. Quite a few times. But I always managed to find a pleasant distraction.

I think the real rarity may be a '71-S PF that doesn't have something wrong with it. The non-DDO/DDR may be the rarest of them all.
