Does this coin look like a special proof?

    Don't think they made proofs that year.

    Yup they didn't start making proofs for capped bust halves until 1818.All are extremely rare with only a dozen or less for each date.

    Not a proof. Nice business strike.

    Proof bust halves are ultra rarities.
    Most of us can only hope to ever own one. They are in the six figure range.

    It's a pretty nice strike, like they said 100% couldn't be a proof based on the year. But also is looking somewhat harshly cleaned to me...

    Just curious, but made you ask if the coin was a proof?

    Much better than usual strike for that die marriage which normally have a very weak wing on the reverse. No proof, but a nice example of an early date CBH.
    Even with the cleaning I wouldn't kick her out of my safety deposit box.
