1971-s peg proof

Hoping this is the coin I will receive.. Pretty ugly tone but the R looked shorter than normal.. What do you guys think?

It's definitely minimal. Let us know what it looks like when you get it.

It's the same coin, actually looks better in hand.. It seems to be a fading peg leg

The super-faded 1971S SP Ikes are hard to assess by photo. There are two factors in the extra "fade" seen in these: 1) die polishing, whihc removes "leg" by virtue of a gradually rising field, and 2) loss of frosting effect. In a super-faded 1971S SP peg leg, I most value #1, and am most fooled by #2 in photos. IOW, I'll get what I thought was a super-faded 1971S SP peg leg in hand, and find out that there is still considerable "leg", but the frosting is gone, producing a misleading photo.
