1972 Type 2 Eisenhower Dollar PCGS MS64 March Variety SOLD
1972 Type 2 Eisenhower Dollar PCGS MS64 March Variety
There are three major reverse die varieties of 1972 copper-nickel clad Eisenhower Dollars. The primary pick up point for identifying each variety is the Earth above the eagle. On the Type 2 reverse, Florida is less rounded and more pointy and the island nations to the southeast of Florida are incuse and seem to appears as one large island. The Type 2 reverse variety is the most rare of the three and is considered to be the key date coin of the entire Eisenhower Dollar series. Many have called the 1972 with the Type 2 reverse the King of Ike Dollars. This 1972 Type 2 Eisenhower Dollar has been graded MS64 by PCGS. The coin is mostly untoned, with just a faint band of golden color around the reverse rim. As an MS64 graded coin, this dollar has many small hits and marks, many more so on the obverse and only a couple of which stand out amongst the others. Because of the interest in this key date, collectors on the Ike Group website have been able to further identify and attribute two sub-varieties of Type 2 reverse, typically called the “March” variety and the “August” variety. This example is the so-called “March” variety which is primarily identified by a small die crack at the top of STATES on the reverse and a very small die gouge in Eisenhower’s hair on the obverse. With the significant jump in value that comes with a gem graded specimen, this Type 2 1972 Eisenhower Dollar seems to be a relative bargain.
