What was it that made you think it was a proof, Martha?
@green18 asked and wonder what made you think it was a proof? The edge on the left side?
Then made a 90 degree to form the edge. For the
life of me I can't seem to " get it " when it comes
to determining a proof.
told me it was a proof. I compare it to every coin
I suspect as a proof, yet I remain BAFFLED !
The rims.....always check the rims. They should be cleanly squared and wire edged. Your example lacks that characteristic. Also, the fields on the coin should be 'mirrored' and that would be evident even on an circulated (impaired) proof coin.
Eh, you'll figure it out sooner or later if you stick around here and keep and open mind and are willing to take a ribbing or two. We will mess with you but it is all in good fun and most here are more than willing to help.
Oh now lets not be like this.
What? Well, what do you teach?
worn down from being in circulation. Those pics
you posted really should clear it up, thanx much.
Can't say. Soldier, poet, scholar, though lacking on all.......
any one. I am not a teacher of any thing. I wanted to be a stand up comic but was afraid every body
would just laugh at me !
