    Umm, might want to start your own thread about that. It has nothing to do with the Ally bank penny.

    try making a new thread with this question, hijacking existing threads is sort of frowned upon! But seriously, we're here to help :)

    and for the record, it's not a proof. You'll want to look for Lincoln's head being strangely "frosty", or sort of matte-looking. Also, the fields (ie, everything not the head) should be strangely shiny.

    Alejandro.. Your 2 Cents are not proof. If you look at the raised rim they are rounded not flat as a proof should look.
    There is no Mintmark because they were struck a the Philadelphia Mint.

    And the best evidence is that the date looks doubled due to Die Deterioration. It's a plating issue for that date.
    I don't think that 2 proof coins would have that type of minor doubling error
