1971-S Proof with odd area on reverse

Post by bch1977 »

I was going through my Ikes looking for the "Moon Spike" when I came across this. If you look at where the eagles right wing touches the moon...the space between the wing and the top leaf on the olive branch, instead of having the moon going across this area, it looks like highly polished like the fields. I've compared this to 30 other Browns I have and have taken it to 2 different LCS in town. Everybody agrees that it's there, but nobody can tell me why. Appreciate the look!

Looks like polishing re-treatments worked into the device. Unique, but not a particularly uncommon phenomenon. Proof Ikes are notorious for being re-treated/polished MANY times.
