1971-S $1 Silver DDR FS-801, DCAM PR69DCAM Certification #32426070, PCGS #510591

Owner's Comments

IMO, the King of Ike double dies - the FS-801. Certainly the grandest DDR of the Ike series. And perhaps the most rare. Only 6-7 known, this one is the one of five to wind up in a PCGS holder. I doubt that this reverse die came even close to reaching the average 1971 proof reverse die production of 2500 coins - who knows how many were actually released, and of those, how many are left. The reverse is Class V, with the pivot point at K 7. IDDDR-35, Wiles DDR-5, Wexler WDDR-010. The obverse is a Class II DDO, likely hub doubled. Listed as IDDO-48. This one was found by Randy O'Donnell (Ike Cherrypicker extraordinaire) in the original mint packaging.
