Well, I guess my George Bailey suggestion isn't going to gain any traction (worth a shot).
So here are my new suggestions for the two primary clashes.
"Nose Clash":

"Yolk Clash":

There are several other clashes on this coin that I think would clasify as "Bicentennial Volunteers." This keeps the terminology similar. The most prominent is on the back of Ike's Neck, stemming from a clash with the Moon on the Reverse:

Other "Bicentennial Volunteers" can be found on the Reverse. Once this gets back from grading I'll do what I can to get some better photos and document the clashes.

What year and mint? (I'm guessing 1976D Type 2)
I now also have a second example, but this one is a 1976-P Type 2. Obverse and Reverse clashes are present.

1872Hokie...

I myself like the name calling it a George Bailey... lol or how about George BELLY... lol
as far as the obv... I have 1 or 2 of the same... (clash above the WE)... to me it looks like
an outline of a Castle.... so you can call it a Castle Top!! since it is above WE... & outline
is of the upper portion of a castle...

Cool looking clashes regardless... back to hunting... :-)

Steve & Bryan...

just to try to help... I also have one of these... clashes are not as pronounced but same clashes...
Get this though... the one I have is a P- Phila coin... (shame the rev has corrosion on it...)

OBV... Bell Clash Line which goes above WE to ikes neck & a lil bit on it...
Mine coin also has a clash on OBV above ike's lip & below his nose... also has what looks like a hair lip mark but location is above the eye brow... also has die clash of earth line coming from behind ike's neck...

REV... (Ike Nose clash or the George Bailey angel)... then a small clash which looks like back of Ike's neck line...

that is about all I can see... just letting ya know...

shasta,
I have two of these clashed bicentennials in my collection, and currently both are at (or on their way to) PCGS. The first one is the one I mentioned in my original post. It has the most obvious clashes and it is a 76-D T2. The second coin has the same clashes, but not as distinct. It does have planchet chatter, but still a good example. This second clashed bicentennial is a 76-P T2.

Well, my 76-D T2 came back from PCGS as MS-64. Pretty happy with this grade (especially since the rest of the lot was a massacre).
My clashed 76-P T2 is at PCGS right now. Fingers crossed they are kinder to that lot of coins...

Thanks, I am hoping for the best with my 76p T2. A matched clashed set would be pretty cool to own.
