I am hoping to get some opinions on if this is a Type 2 72.

I bought a small lot of Ikes and I am just getting started going through them.

Any advice from experienced searchers on how and what to be looking for is greatly appreciated. I am a complete Novice.

Sorry for the poor picture quality. Thanks in advance.

I say it is a type 2 and I suspect August dies, but am not sure on that.

Lee can give you a link to pix that will show the differences between the 3 types of 1972.

That is a Type 2, which, looks to be very well struck in that area based on that amount of shadow and detail of the earth. That's a bit of a rarity for many Type 2s. I had to look twice to be sure of myself.
