1971-S Proof Ike - Re-frosted Earth? PEG Leg?
Posted: Fri Aug 02, 2019 9:56 pm
I have this 71-S proof Ike, and the earth looks very different from the other 71-S proof Ikes I have. It looks really frosty- like the frost is overflowing out into space. Also, there is a "bulge" located between approximately 3 and 5 o'clock. It looks almost perfectly round too, except for this bulge. The frostiness of the earth is notably different from that of the eagle, which has a much glossier appearance. What do you make of it? Is this the result of a die re-treatment or re-frosting? Would this coin also technically classify as a PEG Leg? Thanks!
