My first batch of peg legs.

Hi, the name is Mike.

I’m not as much of an Ike collector as much as an Ike horder. After finding your web site I’ve become quite interested in this part of the hobby and have stated to look at the 500 or so ike's in my collection.

Hope you don’t mind the Photobucket links. All the 76-D’s are type 2’s

Oftenwrong, may be my computer but I get a briefest flash of a close-up and then the same macro view of the three Ikes stacked. From the stack, they look to be peg legs all which is neat! 3 peg legs per 500 random Ikes is probably about right, though they come clumped in occasional BU rolls and bags since they are die-state errors and not individual coin errors.

Have fun exploring the site for other Ikes to search for. You'll be blowing through your 500 Ikes again and again, LOL! Rob

Try holding your cursor over the small views, if a magnify glass “+” appears, picking the image should enlarge it. Each link has 3 Ike’s. If this doesn’t work I can post each coin.

Oh and I found this site after hearing you on coin chat radio pod casts. :mrgreen:

Hi, oftenwrong,

Thanks for the tip, your photos blow up nicely! The 72-D in the middle group seems to have a loooonnnnnggggg Volunteer image (linear image heading SE in the field away from "FG" on the bust).

Some great peg legs here! Have to be careful with the 72 peg legs since they all start with a "peg on serif" left leg which we think is an artifact and not a true Class III doubling from two different hubs. Also the T2 Bicentennial Ikes: their initial design could be called peg leg as both serifs are quite rounded. Defining the criteria for a T2 peg leg is still up in the air IMHO but I'm leaning toward no serifs, rounded or otherwise, as in the middle Ike of the grouping 3. That is a whopping peg leg!
