LET'S DEFINE "COLLECTABLE" IKE DD's

Post by robEzerman » Sat Dec 06, 2008 2:08 pm

The first step building a photographic atlas of the "COLLECTABLE IKE DD's" is defining "collectable".

We need a simple definition that separates the visually interesting Ike DD's from the "minor" Ike DD's of which there are almost as many as there are Ike dies (that's only a slight exaggeration, LOL!).

To get the ball rolling, I've suggested "Unique and visually interesting in a 10X loupe and/or unique and visually magnificent under a 30X microscope".

Please respond with your comments, thoughts, suggestions!

For all other purposes, I favor limiting Ike visible-feature definitions to those visible with careful use of a 10X loupe as most of us do not have or use a 'scope. Therefore, I would be sympathetic to a DD definition that did not include microscopes if that is possible (it may not be). Remember I am no Ike DD expert, not at all, LOL!

Now is the time to cherry Ikes. Lots of fruit still on the trees but don't wait too long. Rob Ezerman
