Mind sharing the grade?
Proofs are not designated as FB, because they are expected to have a crisp strike. Thus, they are ineligible. Only business strikes are awarded FB.
I noticed you didn't reveal the grade. I am thinking 66.
Absolutely. What was I thinking? I sometimes skip some words, like Proof in this case, due to my dyslexia. Thanks for reminding me.
Just tell everyone it's the lower oxygen level up in the mountains.
And while it's entirely true that they do not designate proof Mercs FB, I've seen a fair share of proof Mercury dimes without full bands. That was one of the things I was looking out for. If this particular coin was MS, it would without a doubt be FB.
It does appear to have hints of cameo, but not enough reflectivity to qualify for CAM.
I am beyond thrilled to add this to the collection!
You should be. Congrats again.
Separate names with a comma.
