    I am not sure, but I think this is a 'peg leg' 1971 S Ike...a little scratched, but silver and the lettering in 'In God We Trust' looks like it could be doubled? Help!! lol. How do I get them (my coins) graded?

    Don't handle your coins without gloves. Oils from your skin do bad things to coins.
    At least you are holding it from the edge which is good.

    Looks like a Peg Leg to me also. BUT, this is the Proof variety which carries little increased value. The 1971-S Peg Leg variety that carries the large premium is not a proof, it's a business strike "blue pack" silver Ike.

    There are different type of peg leg and your IKE coin's peg leg look like "Fading" type. For DDO, too far to analysis and confirm.

    Good to know, guys. Thank you for all your useful information. I will definitely start using cotton gloves to handle my coins. As for the DDO, if you click on the photo it will show up on a new tab and then you can zoom in on it from there. I had only bought this coin for a dollar :yes: Looks like a great deal for me ;D
