    I have some knowledge of Ikes. There were NO Ikes that contain silver made for general circulation. The only silver Ikes are 40% and consist of the following:
    1971-1974 what are called Brown Ikes that come in a brown box encased in plastic like some of the GSA Morgan silver dollars. These are all proof coins and often show some hazing from the plastic they were encased in.
    1971-1974 Blue Ikes. Uncirculated coins of 40% silver sealed in plastic or mylar.
    1776-1976 Bicentennial proof sets of an Ike, quarter and half dollar, all 40% silver and comes in a little book like holder and all coins are sealed in plastic capsules.
    1776-1976 uncirculated bicentennial sets in a red envelope sealed in plastic or mylar, same 3 coins, all 40% silver.

    All other Ikes are clad.

    I have a 72, 73 and 76 silver found CRHing. I guess it's like finding a proof!

    Nobody said the Ike's were silver. Point was being made that even thought there circulated clad. They still carry a small premium.

    I was only comparing it to finding a proof. It is quite clear that there are indeed silver Ike's.

    Yep - He calls it quantitative easing. Sicko.



    Oh, and if you think a 25% markup is nice, check this listing:HUGE IKE DOLLAR HOARD - EISENHOWER $ COIN LOT | eBay


    People do know they can buy these for face value if they look hard enough, right? Seriously, who needs regular clad Ikes this bad??
