Ike is confusing!
Hi guy's, first of all, my thread is NOT what you're thinking. Lol. I like typing in catchy titles, sorry. What I am talking about is this.
I've been cherry picking for a majority of my collecting life. I've been taught by a dealer friend of mine who I can honestly say, " he is an expert in the variety/error game." He's in a few books. In saying that, regardless of all the learning and knowledge I continue to be confused in this coin, as the variety aspect. It's the Ike Dollar! There are a few Varieties for this coin. Esp. the 1972 Reverse Type II. Also, the 1971s "Peg Leg". Here is where the confusion comes in. What are the KEY years for these? Proof or not proof, Business strike or not Business strike? I know there are different years for different Varieties. Which one is the BIG ONE for the "Peg Leg"? Which one is the BIG ONE for the Type II Variety? Before you guy's show me any pics, I seen all these and still can't really determine. Lol. Maybe it's just me getting old? Anyone else have these same confusing choices with the Ike's? Boy'o boy, It gets to be too difficult in pulling the trigger on purchasing these potential gems. I don't want to spend money foolishly. I been at a shop today and thought I found one (Peg Leg) the BIG ONE! It is a 1971 Proof, Brown Box. Then, I read it's not the Proofs. Oh well, thanks guy's.
No big thing, it's just frustrating.
See how these pics don't explain enough of detail. What year?, what Mint?
