    I found this very shiny mirror finish 2019D Roosevelt Dime.

    I saw a video that proof coins are worth money.

    The pictures really don't do this coin justice.

    I dint see any visible scratches on the coin even.though the picture makes it look like it does.

    Full mirror finish on both sides.

    How can I tell if it's just well aged or if it did come from a recently dumped proof coin set?

    Proof dimes do not gave an S int mark that is a Denver business strike. These come looking very polished.

    By the way welcome to CT.

    It’s a Denver business strike for general circulation. Denver produces better looking coins than the other mints. Welcome to CT.

    Some better pics from the scope.

    Question...I also heard that proof coins don't have reeded edges...anyone know if that is true? 20240407_154545.jpg 20240407_154555.jpg 20240407_154620.jpg 20240407_154628.jpg

    All dimes have reeded edges.

    I read it in an article when I searched for what distinguishes a proof coin from a ln uncirculated coin.

    Ignore... again, please do not post pictures of screens. The pixelization makes the image useless. A fair number of people who are usually willing to help simply ignore these threads.

    Take out the memory card and load the image directly.

    Your article fed you a line of horse manure. Get yourself a Yeoman Red Book…it tells you of what and how proof coins are made…don’t believe eBay, YouTube or Etsy or get used to being sad and disappointed…imo…Spark

    Cheech9712 Every thing is a guess

    Most US proof coins have S mint marks starting in the late 70’s.
