This is in no way true. Remember a “proof” refers to a manufacturing process. A proof coins can and do find their way into circulation. Circulation wear does not change the fact that the coin is a proof; however, it may become impaired. An impaired proof is still a proof. I primarily collect 18th century English and Irish proof copper, and I have a handful of particularly rare circulated proof patterns in my collection.

I doubt anyone would call this one impaired. Too pretty for that.
And a beautiful coin, perhaps we can call it a CP Circulated Proof or AUP Almost Uncirculated Proof.
