1976 (really 1975) Type 1 proof peg leg major fade?

Here are 2 different 1976 Type 1 proofs with what I thought were the major fade type, but I need input from the masters. Thank you!

#1 is cool: 1) a heavily faded peg leg (from multiple die re-treatments), 2) weird die crack / cud associated with the R?

Wish I could find one like this (except maybe cleaner / higher grade).
