1971-S SILVER PR 97428 1971-S $1 PR69DCAM 33302 178 33775204
This is the rare "Nightcrawler" DIVa 1S2-401. There are less than 20 known examples of this single-die variety! Hubbed-through reverse: a linear shard of die metal slid off the eagle's left leg, and embedded near the talon, giving the appearance that the eagle is clutching a large worm. "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. ODV with full serif R. Obverse with TDO - tripling best seen in the left serif of the R, Ike's hair, the N in the motto, and the 9. Reverse with DDR seen in AMERICA, most stars, Dollar, and olive leafs. IDDD die stage AA - the W and E a barely kissing.
1971-S SILVER DDO FS-103 PR 395913 1971-S $1 PR69DCAM 15 0 150
DIVa 1S1-301 MMP2 DMR2 with TDR. QA stickered.
1971-S SILVER DDO FS-106 PR 395916 1971-S $1 PR69DCAM 29 0 290
True FS-106 - MMP matching Brain Vaile's original coin in this set. In total, 49 attributed by PCGS, 28 DCAM, 5 PR69 DCAM. But how many are true FS-106? I can verify that some in FS-106 holders are similar, but not the same die by MMP.
1971-S SILVER DDO FS-801 PR 510591 1971-S $1 PR69DCAM 2 0 20
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.

1972-S SILVER PR 97429 1972-S $1 PR69DCAM 24336 294 24621336
This actually a DDO/DDR - labeled "Minor Variety". "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. ODV with design peg leg.
1972-S SILVER DDO FS-101 PR 396483 1972-S $1 PR69DCAM 39 2 392
Actually a TDO, DIVa 2SP-301. "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. ODV with design peg leg. Also has DDR (see photos).
1973-S CLAD PR 97430 1973-S $1 PR69DCAM 17650 34 1792739
"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. This one has a DDR (see photos).
1973-S SILVER PR 97431 1973-S $1 PR69DCAM 25355 64 2589977
This is the "Snake Crater" DIVA. Perhaps only 4 are known to exist. The snake-like "extra" appears to be slithering out of the edge of the big crater under the eagle. "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. DDR seen in the craters, leaves, FG, and LAR. Minor DDO seen in 73.
1973-S SILVER DDO FS-101 PR 396480 1973-S $1 PR69DCAM 42 1 421
Only 21 are known in PCGS holders, with only 5 at this grade and none higher"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. Mated to a DDR (see photos).

"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. MMS-2b. Has DDR (see photo)
1974-S SILVER PR 97433 1974-S $1 PR69DCAM 20697 134 21359165
Micro-S. MMP3 - very rare. This coin carries the MMS-1 in a smaller, more open form, with field within the upper loop - the micro-s. Only four dies have been identified to produce 74S SP Micro-S coins. It has been estimated that only 1,000-2,000 were minted. DIVA - attributed by Brain Vaile. Unattributed DDO/DDR. (Brian Vaile Legacy Set)
1976-S CLAD TYPE 1 PR 97434 1976-S $1 PR69DCAM 16723 17 1708320
"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. ODV with design peg leg. Has DDR (see photos).

"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. Unusual MM upper left shelf with tripling - a bit strange for DSSD?
1976-S SILVER PR 97436 1976-S $1 PR69DCAM 36699 112 37056121
"Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. ODV with design peg leg. DDO/DDR (see photos)
