    When a coin is this dark with gold dust on it does it mean it's an old proof coin? 20190821_121658.jpg 20190821_121829.jpg ...

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    No, it means it's just a worn coin.

    Proof coins are specially made, so all of the details are sharp.

    Even if it was an impaired proof, which it is not, the tell tale sign would be a squared rim instead of rounded. This is a normal business strike. 1956 proof cent.jpg
