    Here's this Ike that I swear is a DDO-001. The thing is though this variety is for a proof silver and this one is an MS silver. Since it's slabbed, the pictures will be through the case but hopefully detailed enough. I didn't find any master hub doubling listed for this type either. Did or does this variety cross over from PF to MS???

    I see the doubling. And the question remains: Were Proof dies used on silver MS?

    VV has 5 varieties listed, 3 for silver proof, and 2 for copper-nickel proof. Your coin looks like it has MS (not squared) rims. Very nice high grade Ike.

    BTW, Wexler has no listings for 1973…Spark

    He's photographing light reflection mixed in with minor strike doubling. How I wish we could get the focus back to collecting coins. This is a beautiful silver dollar and yet it's somehow lacking because it's not screwed up by the Mint somewhere. Who even cares if it's some new variety? Seriously, folks, let's grab ourselves some sense...

    I thought all proof coins were struck twice. That looks like MD to me and the field is on the shiny side which will reflect those things.

    This one isn't a silver proof, it's a silver regular strike. Actually these are silver-clad, both the proofs and the regular strikes, at compositions of 80-20 on the outside and 20-80 on the inside. This one is an MS67 silver regular strike.

    Thanks. I missed that. I saw the slab with SILVER on it and that was all it took. I have a silver clad that’s slabbed and it says just that, SILVER CLAD.

    Yeah. I don't know why they call them silver, really. When I hear silver, I think of 90%. Or at least not something with an 80% copper core, like these got.
