Two 1971-S Ike RPMs in FS-501 attributed holders...and the true FS-501 is the less prevalent.
Eisenhower dollar collectors:
The true FS-501 RPM, which is listed in CherryPickers' Guide, and cross referenced to Kalantzis IDDD-RPM-3, Wexler WRPM-003, and Wiles RPM-001, is not alone in being attributed as FS-501 by TPGs, and more precisely, PCGS.
The "alternate FS-501" that appears in FS-501 attributed holders is cross referenced to IDDD-RPM-4, WRPM-004, RPM-002, The Ike Group DIVa 1SB-501.
Of these two, the "alternate FS-501" appears to be widely more prevalent than the true FS-501 in PCGS holders attributed as FS-501. Further, the proportion of each of these RPMs in FS-501 holders may be reflective of actual mintage and resultant availability.
