The United States Mint produced a limited number of 40% Silver Eisenhower Dollars during its run. This 1974 Eisenhower Dollar was the last year of release! These Proof Finish versions are known as "Brown Ikes", compared to the regular issues known as "Blue Ikes" due to their blue envelope packaging. The Proof "Brown Ike" Eisenhower Dollars got their name from its faux wood patterned government outer packaging.
This uncirculated 1974 GEM Proof is stunning and still in its government issued case! Last Year of Issue pieces are always more desirable as a key date in the series. These were the last Brown Ikes ever produced, and with their stunning proof shine untouched in their original packaging, how can you not add these to your collection?
