    Hi all,
    Flea market purchase 6/9/2018

    This is supposedly a 1963 Proof issue.. I'm not totally sure

    Nice BU, but not a proof.

    I can't call it as the details and rims are quite sharp, the muted colour could be toning?? Details like the furl/ropes on the sail not quite what a proof should be. Please don't dump it, if a giveaway I'd take it - we used to live on Cyprus.

    Hard to tell, but may be a foggy proof. As 7Jags mentioned, the rims are sharp and squared rather than rounded.

    I suppose it could be a proof with the mirrors hazed over (or just really subdued), but I just don't see it.

    Perhaps @paddyman98 won't feel too strongly against giving a small area of the fields a swipe with a cloth or alcohol pad? That would solve the mystery right away :)
