Did I finally cherry an 71-S FS-103?

Not the best picks, but tell me what you think:

It is a Peg-Leg R.
I was using the images on the IDDD website for reference on the Motto. What do you guys think? Compared to the photos on Tom's website the motto looks legit.

You know, if I would quit screwing around with DIVa, you could tell real fast. Please search the forum here. Lee has an old post with excellent pictures, much better than IDDD.

Based on Lee's pics, I'd say that's a dead-on match. Nice!

Coin came in today. It's in an ANACS PR68DCAM plastic. The seller called it EDS, but with the spread between the W and E, i'm not agreeing. Still, very excited about this one. Off to PCGS soon! Will post more pictures once I crack it out, but I doubt they will be better than the pictures I already provided (we all know the level of my photography skills is lacking).

Hi Bryan,

First, good luck, hope you score.

If the WE has a space it is NOT early die stage, die state is now used only within each stage, because of all the abrading and polishings that had been done to the ikes.

If it came back from Anacs as such then it will come back the same way from pcgs, they cant shine johns shoes or mine for that matter and for anyone on this site as well.

If by some chance it comes back an 8 I would live to be able to examine it. as well you know if you would like a die number for your coin holdered with a die number send it in. I will just remind you if you do want me to look at it, if it is another master die issue it gets listed as such.

Take care be back again when time permits.

Tom K

Thanks Tom, we'll see what happens. Currently it is at PCGS getting graded/attributed/photo'ed.
Of the 10ish coins that I have there right now, this is the one I think I am the most excited about.

1971-S PR68Cameo FS-103. Population of 4. Only 1 PR69DCAM FS103DCAM is higher!
Too excited to wait to post this from my computer, so the cell phone will have to work. Just graded at PCGS, and I am happy!

Thanks Steve. I was really happy with PR68Cameo. So basically it was in Anacs pr68 dcam and crossed at the same grade, just as a cameo.
