Bicentennial Ikes have two styles of lettering on the reverse, a thin lettering as you posted and a heavier lettering.  I believe one style was minted in 1975 and included in that year's mint/proof sets and the second variety was included in the 1976 sets, but I may be mistaken on that.

This is the more common Type 2 reverse, characterized by narrow lettering. The Type 1 chows fat letters, by comparison, and is scarcer.
