1971-S IKE SB FADING PEG LEG (FS-401 & WEXLER's DDO-007) MS 64, DIVA ATTRIBUTED

This is a 1971-S Fading Peg Leg (Business Strike) (Cherrypicker’s FS-401) with DIVA Attribution. The obverse fields are mirror-like so the touch of frosting on Ike's bust gives the obverse a cameo appearance that is more attractive than the MS 64 would indicate. This FPL has the classic marker heavy-right T and Y of LIBERTY and the "valley" between the legs of the R.
The Peg Leg (left leg of the R) is is a function of the number of re-polishing and re-frosting treatments and shows the same as in the Cherrypicker’s Guide, FS-S1-1971S-401 (Fourth Edition, Vol. 2- pg.361). I included pictures of this FPL's unusually sharp DDO notching. And nobody but the IKE GROUP has noticed and is attributing the three different FPL obverse dies: this FPL has the die with the most dramatic doubling.
(Rob has supplied most of the description above and all but the top 2 pictures below.
Thanks,
Bill

Bill, nice post - you have a very attractive FPL! Rob
Now is the time to cherry Ikes. Lots of fruit still on the trees but don't wait too long. Rob Ezerman
