1972 Ike Dollar MS65 PCGS (D) Coin w/ Display Slab

The Ike dollar was a major challenge for the mint's production capabilities. The mint had not struck a dollar-sized coin in decades, and the copper-nickel used for the circulation strikes was much tougher than the 90% silver previously used in dollars. There probably hasn't been a more difficult coin for the mint to produce before or since. When the coin was first being readied for production, it was found that the original reverse design was of too high relief to be able to strike up fully, given the limitations of technology and budget at the time.

To address this problem, a low-relief (Type 1) design was created in addition to the high-relief (Type 2) design. For the first year of issue in 1971, the low-relief Type 1 was used for all business strikes (Philly, Denver, and the silver uncirculated San Francisco Ikes). The high-relief Type 2 design was used only for the more carefully produced silver proofs. In 1972, the the Type 2 high-relief design made it to the 1972-S uncirculated in addition to the 1972-S proofs. The 1972-D coins retained the Type 1 low relief reverse throughout the year. To find a 1972 D in this high of grade is extraordinary.
