Proof coins are minted on highly polished blanks and struck multiple times to bring out a higher relief and mirrored fields with frosty devices.
Welcome to the forum.......
Thanks for the info green18! Didn't know proofs are only minted at San Francisco mint. Man am I dumb, duh! But I find it interesting to learn this stuff. Have a few older coins my uncles and such gave me as a kid and think about the history of that coin, where it's been and what it was subjected to. Call me weird that way.
And do all proofs have frosted devices? Just curious.
Right Ken, but OP's coin is an 2010/2016 or something or other........those come out of San Fran.......
Yup, I ordered the Red Book and Official ANA Grading Standards book yesterday. Maybe I'll git a little more educated. Thanks for the input, all guidance is appreciated!
Thanks Kentucky, more little bits of knowledge I'll save for future reference.
