1972-D Peg Leg with Lots of Clashes

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.

1972-D Peg Leg with Lots of Clashes

Post by 1872Hokie » Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:49 am

I recently found a 1972-D Peg Leg and boy does this thing have a lot of clash work going on. First there is the Talon Head and a Moon Line on the Reverse. The reverse also holds a faint Jaw Line clash. Back to the Obverse it appears that is a good Volunteer as well as a Hair Lip. All were noticed without my scope or loupe, so I can't wait to get this thing under some magnification and snap a few pics.
I'll keep you all posted and try to post some pictures once I get a chance.
Back to the Hunt...

Nice find...

Am looking forward to seeing your pictures... I find that most of the 1972-D peg legs
also have a lot of clashes as you described... as I said before the more clashes the merrier... lol

Working on photos now. Hard to capture some of the stuff. There has been a lot of tooling done to the dies for this one making some of the clashes harder to pick up with my set up. Also found something else that is interesting. It isn't a "Soul Patch" but maybe an earlier state of one? If we called the one the "Runny Nose", I'd call this one the "Drool."

Here we go...
First up, the Peg Leg R (with what appears to be some doubling)
Image
The Talon Head
Image
The "Drool"
Image
It also appears this may have been an UDU, but those details look to have been tooled out.
On the reverse there were two noticible die cracks. The first is under the Moon Line Clash, in DOLLAR
Image
And the other is at the end of AMERICA
Image
Finally, the Jaw Line
Image
Steve, here is a shot of the MMP area. I know it isn't as tight in as you'd like it, but for preliminary stuff it should work to see if it falls into one of the 4 known MMP's from your thread.
Image
Again and as always, sorry for the picture quality. Once this guy goes off to PCGS and the new DIVa Cat is rolled out, I'll send it in to be stickered and hopefully some better pictures can be taken at that point in time.

Not sure if the term "Soul Patch" was ever made official, but here you go...

This was the area where i think there was a UDU that got retooled.

I see what you mean, but I don't think the field area to the left of the neck is raised. I think what I'm calling "tooling marks" give the raised impression though in the picture. One of those tricks your eyes play on you when you see lines and curved marks. It's a very interesting coin. Right now it's in ANACS hardware, MS64. I think it has a really good shot at crossing, but I'll crack it out to submit it just to be on the safe side.
