What do you think? Proof or just a well toned early die state business strike?!?

Shhhhh, if they don't authenticate it, he can't sell it. If someone is willing to bite, set the hook!
Matte proof planchets were special and never touched one another, therefore shouldnt show any planchet marks on the shoulder of Lincoln.
Your rims arent square enough either, especially on the reverse.
Also, the master hubs were given more details in 1915 making the 1915 and 1916 Lincolns much sharper. So much so that a lot of times MS 1915 and 1916 Lincoln's often get mistaken for proofs.
If that's a proof (it's not), then so is mine
The coin has had some wear and scratches unfortunately happen to it.
Could still easily be a MPL. Way closer than your 1916. Especially the reverse devices.
Has ALL die markers for known DIE PAIR #1.
Great pull it out of the cardboard and take a proper shot of the coin. And please show those markers.
And while you're at it, go read about coiner's intent.
Appetite... from all the crow one would have to eat to admit they were wrong not once but twice.
Fair enough. I hadn’t considered the pride issue.
