Help with 71-S "Nightcrawler" census report......

Post by BrianVaile »

Since it's discovery by Ike Club member Jim, in Feb. 2010. I've only heard from one other member (shasta7) that has found another. I am pretty sure Lee has found one or two and combined with the (2) I had found, that gives us a total pop of around a half dozen. That's not a whole lot in two and a half years of searching. It's pretty easy to see if you find one,....I'm just not sure very many people know to look for it.

I would like to know if any others have been found since then, but not reported, so that I can adjust our pop figures for this very intriguing 71-S Proof DIVA.

Happy Hunting!
Brian

I have one for sure, but I haven't checked all my coins yet either.

Care to share what markers to look for on these?

Brian, I have found big fat zero in about 400 hundred searched brown boxes.

Here is the link to one of the original threads that has pics:

Lee has some real good close-up pics of the one he found in this thread.
Note the "whisps of smoke" coming out of the "top".

I'll add some more tonight when I get home.

Happy Hunting!

I only have the one I shared Brian.

All attempts at securing a second example have been futile.

Another weekend homework assignment???
I'll get on it and search what I have. Must admit, have been looking more for the FS801.
I also have yet to do the "scorched earth" homework assignment.

I have one that you already know about. Aside from that, I search the rest of the 71 SP Ikes that I have and struck out approximately 40 times.

Now onto the scorched earth search......

OK.....is that really it? No more to be found? Right now, the pop of the "nightcrawler" is still "Stuck" at around a measly half dozen.
I know I have searched several hundred 71-S Proofs over the years and have only come up with two.
This is one very dramatic and strange Proof Ike that is also a "naked eye" DIVA cherry" to search for.
Any of you guys out there with a "stash" of 71-S Brown boxes, or even a simple Dansco Ike set,...check out the reverse of the
71-S Proof and take a good gander at the Eagle's right hand (as you're looking at it) claw. If it is there, you can't miss it!

Happy Hunting!
Brian
