About This Set: LOW Hanging Fruit

"I like IKE" became the campaign theme in 1951 as then General Eisenhower won his party's nomination for president. Many still do like IKE as hundreds now collect this classic dollar coin in one form or another. President Richard Nixon, who served as Eisenhower's VP, signed legislation on New Years Eve 1970, authorizing this new 'Ike' dollar coin, which was the first dollar coin struck since the end of the Peace dollar series in 1935.

Dwight D. Eisenhower served two terms as POTUS (1952-1960). He was also the Supreme General of the European Theatre during WWII, making him one of the highest military/political leaders in American history.

Footnote: this 21 coin "IKE Dollar Set" is just one coin short (1977-P) from being 100% 'TOP POP', with the present recap as follows :
Top Pop examples.... (6) and Top Pop 1 examples.... (14)

This is a pretty tight set of Ike's. As of today I count (14) Top Pop Pop 1 coins and those are tough to find these days. That 1971-S "Silver" FR02 is spectacular discovery in anyone's book. Congratulations are in order for a superb job ~ well done on this quest you have taken up.
