Highly polarized tagged photons were used to measure the distribution of M1 transition strength in Pb206 at excitations between 5.5 and 6.9 MeV. The total M1 strength found in this energy range is consistent with that reported in Pb208. For the isoscalar state at 5.8 MeV in Pb206, B(M1)=(0.72±0.15)μN2. Microscopic calculations are in good quantitative agreement with these results.
