Well, that's a tough one with the Peg Leg.  I did some research on eBay, and the 1971-S Proof Peg Leg isn't as in demand as the 1971-S Business Strike Peg Leg, it would appear as the BU one seems to bring stronger prices.  An unattributed PCGS coin in PF 68 Cameo brought $18.50 here:

But this original Mint Sealed one brought $30.65:

Another Mint Sealed one brought $18.05 here:

And one last PCGS coin that is unattributed in PF 69 DCAM was sold for $27.95 as a Buy It Now with over 10 more available:

Based on this information, if you were to find the right NGC only Registry collector who REALLY wanted your coin, you may be able to pull closer to the $30 mark, but if it were my coin, I'd likely put it up at $29.99 or Best Offer and take the first $20 to $25 offer that I received.  Maybe others will have different perspectives on the price on this coin, but I feel confident in my assessment here.

Yeah Mohawk I appreciate that I am confused and can’t do much but ask around I guess and just listen to some opinions like yours and go from there. I really just figured that there were none sealed that had been graded like that so that’s the only reason for even submitting it plus it didn’t look half bad. Thanks again Mohawk

Hello again,

Well, I couldn't find any completed listings for the 1973-S Doubled Die on eBay.  It doesn't look like any have sold recently there.  A 1973-S FS-101 did sell on Great Collections though.  It was a PF 68 Ultra Cameo that realized $90:

https://www.greatcollections.com/Coin/594419/1973-S-Eisenhower-Dollar-Silver-DDO-FS-101-NGC-Proof-68-UC

Heritage sold one in PF 70, but that of course went for crazy money, likely more because of the PF 70 grade than the FS-101 variety.  In considering the Great Collections result, I'd price your coin for maybe between $70 and $80.  If I were to sell it, I'd start it at $79.99 or Best Offer and take anything between that price and $70 for it.

Well, the sealed thing with Ikes doesn't always work well.  They're not like GSA Morgans as, at one point, ALL 40% Silver Proof Ikes were sealed in those packages.  There is also the fact that those packages are actually bad for the coins in the long run, causing some collectors to prefer them out of the original holder, either raw or in an NGC or PCGS slab.  And, to many of those who aren't opposed to the 40% Proofs in the original packaging, it doesn't really matter if they are in the packaging or not.  They don't rule them out, but they don't specifically seek them out either.  Your coin is only Top Pop for NGC graded coins in the original packaging, which means that it is only Top Pop to a collector specifically seeking to collect these in that packaging.....and from what I know, that's a small market.  To most other collectors of Ike dollars, your coin is simply just another PF 67 Cameo 1971-S Ike, which is not Top Pop in absolute terms nor is it scarce in that condition.  There is also the fact that many collectors of Ikes do not view the 1971-S Proof Peg Leg a must have variety.  It's not in the league of things like the 1971-D Friendly Eagle or the 1972 Type 2, which are often considered must haves.  All of these factors combine to result in a lower price for your coin.

Forgot the word "Proof" at an important point.

Glad I could help, even if the news wasn't that great.  But, it's all part of learning about this hobby.  I know I took my lumps when I was getting started as well, but they were valuable learning experiences.  I wouldn't be where I am to with coins if I hadn't had those experiences, so they were valuable.
