Type 1 Bicentennial Peg Leg questions

These Peg Legs were created by the polishing (or abrading) done to the area between Ike's head and the "R" on the working or master dies.

Type 1 Bicentennial Peg Leg questions

Post by Chrishjr1976 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 12:42 am

After buying the Little Book (in digital format) and reading an insane amount of postings here on this forum you have created I still have questions regarding the Type 1 Bicentennials. Are peg legs common on circulation issue (typical mint set) Bicentennials? The reason I ask is that I have roughly 200+ of each Bicentennial issue nickel clad issue Ikes (some removed from circulation and others that have recently been removed from sealed mint sets) and I have only seen a hand full of examples that are similar to the pictures below. Also, what style of Peg Leg could these be? (best photos I could supply with my current equipment).

I would also like anyone's opinion about a possible grade on the following Ike. I feel it would grade MS66 as there appears to be almost no contact marks at all aside from the 3 small dots near the right side of the bell on the reverse. I'm not sure how much of an impact those may have on the over all grade. (sorry for the horrible reverse photo)

Nevermind..... I found the information about it in Chapter 14 of the Little Book.
