    If a 1909-1916 Lincoln is a proof, then it is a matte proof, correct?

    There are no "non-matte proofs" for those years?

    First non-matte proof was 1936, I do believe.

    They made Matte Proofs in 1909-1916.

    They made Satin and Brilliant proofs in 1936.

    They made Brilliant proofs from 1936 - 1942.

    They started making brilliant proofs again in 1950, and continuously since.

    Check your Red Book for details.
