Thanks and look forward to more collecting! Mitch.

I don't think that "radial mint luster lines" have anything to do with business strike vs. proof, but I'm more than happy to be corrected by the experts here.
I don't think that the rims are square enough to be proof, but again, willing and happy to be corrected.
I had my entire collection in the Blue Whitman folders. I started them in 1948. I recently started to go through my entire collection. The Whitman folders with a backing feature left black marks on the reverse of some of my coins. So, I took them all out and started the album process all over. Nice looking dimes. Welcome to CT.
The 1938 is not a proof, and does appear to me to have the radial lines you are looking for.
I see the lines now on both. Thanks for your help.
Thanks, I have a lot of unc Morgan’s and Peace dollars in these same binders in great condition but with the black toning. However, it’s not so bad as there are an equal amount in the same type of books with nice even toning. Works out well I guess
If you will notice, some of the albums don't have exposed glue on the backing paper. Some others do. It seems like the backing was put on with the glue on the cardboard part on some. And, on other ones it seems the glue was put on the paper first. This process allowed the dried glue to be exposed to the coins. The exposed glue darkens the coins more. JMO.
