71-S & 72-S Proof "Leg Splints"

Post by BrianVaile »

Here is a nice 2-Coin series for a very similar die Gouge.
Both have a similar, deep die gouge right next to Eagles right leg. 'Wonder if there is a 73-S "Leg Splint". :shock:
Relatively easy to spot, but very scarce. I've only found a few 72-S examples, and only one 71-S example so far.

The 71-S is a really close call to being a Peg Leg and is also a "regular" DDO.

The 72-S is a major DDO with great notching almost everywhere in the Motto (except for the W :?: strange)

I went through my 71 and 72 brown boxes tonight and thought I was about to strike out when I found a single 72 sp “Leg Splint” in the last couple of coins! No 71s yet but I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled.

Awesome! A "Library" can come in handy some times. :D. So far, I've found only a few of these "Leg Splints". I initially thought them to be from the same reverse die and was very excited until I compared them side by side and saw they are slightly different. The 71's seem to be tougher to find than the 72's.

Happy Hunting!
Brian
