72-D Peg Leg

Post by boothill40 » Sat Oct 11, 2008 11:20 pm

Going through some Ikes Both graded and raw and found a 72-D with what appears to be a Peg Leg, has anyone found this and is it scarce or common.

Thanks in advance-------Tom

From the "How rare are die state peg legs" article found on this site:
72-D CB 1 per 100 to 1 per 250 (watch out, left leg is "peg on serif" so partial peg legs can look like the real deal)

They are uncommon.

Grats on the find!

Tom, nice to hear from you!

The peg on serif variety can be a whole separate entity and discussion. There are several clear cut peg legs for this date. Most come along with some nice clashes, such as the moon line.

Although fairly unusual, the 72D peg leg is by far the most common of clad CuNi peg legs. However, that also leads to opportunity for finding some very nice examples. The Ike Group as a whole has quite a few of them. I have some that range from various circulated conditions all the way to examples in PCGS MS65 & MS66 holders. This is always one that's good to look for at shows; readily visible and the hit rate is decent - relatively speaking of course.

Just got a UNC 74D peg leg today that I BIN'd off eBay for $2.95 las week.

Have fun with these!!

Tom,

I beleive the only step you missed on posting pictures on this forum is the "place inline" button which formats the string and dumps it at current cursor position.

Tom, The system likes its photos in the .JPG format.
I see a picture of what looks like a good peg leg.
Sometimes the serif, which would disqualify it, can only be seen with high magnification. Please go to the topic: 1972-D PEG LEGS by ROB for a good discussion and see the articles page for more info.
Sorry for the delay in responding, Somehow we all missed the photo you did post or were waiting for another post.
Bill
P.S. I'm going to move this topic into this Sub-forum for more exposure. http://ikegroup.sslpowered.com/ikegroup ... 806faabdb5
