1971-S $1 CA, ( Proof ) Eisenhower Dollar * CRAZY DIE GOUGE?

Post by UScoinshop1977 » Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:28 pm

I have been interested in IKE varieties for awhile now. I buy quantities of brown box 71'S to find DDO's. This time it was different.

I found this crazy die scratch/ gouge that goes at a 45° angle from IKE's bust to the left of the I of LIBERTY.

This piece is still in the original mint packaging.

Here are my questions :

1) Is this a die scratch, gouge, or die crack?

2) Is this a known variety?

3) where can I purchase a book on collected IKE DDO/DDR/RPM ect that is past the Cherrypickers Guide, or CONECA's, What are Die Varieties?

Let me just say that this is visible with the naked eye. It's pretty extreme especially for a modern Proof. The pictures were taken with my cell phone without the use of a loop at only 4x magnification. This looks to be a Straight Peg Leg variety as well.

I have included a complete obverse and reverse.

PS. Thank you all for the add.

If this isn't a known variety and it needs a name, I like " Arrow Head ".

Brian,

Do you think that this has a chance of becoming a DIVA?

I do,...however, we need to have more than one example. I'm pretty sure that is one of the criteria,
The defect is "significant" and is "naked eye" easy to see, so that satisfies (2) other major criteria. It has a very good chance but
we just need to have some more examples. Then, they need to be sent to Steve for final approval.

Happy Hunting!
Brian
