1971-D Type 1 and 2

Post by MontCollector »

I was glancing at the price guide listed on the site and noticed that there are 2 types of 1971-D Ikes.

Are these distinguished by moon type like the 1972-P's? Or is it something else?

Thanks in advance...Mont.

On that note, I'll have to re-evaluate the price guide DAILY the way prices are plummeting....

Andy, I can TOTALLY see that!
Today I looked at a Heritage 71-S MS67. NO way would I have even sent the coin in to be graded. I'd put it at 64 at best. Yet these types of High-Grade Ike coins have been "cropping up" over the years. All of the "high end" Ikes that really aren't "high end" makes for a tough playing field and over saturates the market, driving prices down. Coins, while equal in number, are FAR from equal!

I honestly believe that the Ike Dollars are probably the most Rodney Dangerfield "I Don't get no respect" series of US coins. Thus, the Ike Group is here to wake up a few true collectors and go forward. ROCK ON IKE DUDES! :D

Happy Hunting!
