72P, 72D, 77D Peg Legs

Post by DaveWantuck » Sun Apr 26, 2009 4:55 pm

Hi everyone...
My latest find at a local bank ($89 worth of Ikes) proved very interesting....after checking them out, I was sure I had found 3 peg legs...I checked , then rechecked, and finally sent them to Gary (the peg leg Kahuna) to verify what I thought I had...sure enough, he confirmed what I had...pretty exciting for me...he said they all graded AU55 / AU58 so I'm a happy camper...certainly made my day... ;)

Het Dave,

Nice find! Keep looking,,, there are more IKE's out there to be found for little cost that will yield some big returns someday.
