    I do know the chances of finding this coin while searching rolls is almost impossible.... but there is always a chance!

    If you don't mind would you guys and gals take at my coin and see what you think.
    It looks just like the graded ones ive looked at

    This is what your coin would look like if it was a no mintmark proof. See the difference yours is a business strike albeit a decent one. The proof here has frosted devices and clear reflective fields.

    besides what reed posted, see that "hump" thru the moto in your third pic? thats a sign of die deterioration, you wont see that on a proof, also the rim on your coin is rounded and uneven, proof rims have like a straight edge on the inside and will be quite even all the way around, proofs are struck a lot better and more carefully than business strikes...

    Not a proof. Buy a 1990 proof set to compare. They aren't expensive at all.

    That is Great advise and never a bad addition for a new collection. Just buy the one and see how you like proofs in hand. You might get bit by the proof bug and become a proof expert you never know!
