I love my pair of '98-S Kennedy's! The Red Book identifies them as "Matte Finish" but lists the grade in the Proof column. To further confuse the issue, mine were graded by PCGS as MS69. It was a few years later that they changed the designation to SP for new coins being submitted. I kept mine just the way they are! So, what is it supposed to be MS, PF or SP? I guess only his hairdresser (and Jackie) knows.
I personally think the proof is a regular PR. Nothing special about the finish, or surface preparation. The Uncirculated looks to me as if it does have a special matte finish, so if it were me grading it, I would go Sp on that one. Who knows???
