1971-S $1 Silver Peg Leg FS-401 MS65 Certification #26873560, PCGS #148405

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1971-S Peg Leg Dollar is a very popular variety amongst Eisenhower Dollar collectors.  This variety is referred to Peg Leg due to the missing serifs on the left base of the letter R in the word Liberty. The variety is fairly prominent to the naked eye and is a variety worth looking for since it commands a premium even in low uncirculated grades.
