Pennies

#1 Unread post by katgerdy1 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:13 pm

Hello,
I Love looking at coins, but I don’t know a lot about the different types. I’m happy to join. I’m having trouble Distinguishing proofs from business strikes. Can anyone tell me which these are?

These are business strike coins and not proofs, proofs are coins with a special finish and are not often found in circulation. Actually proofs come in proof sets.

Proof coins have a cameo contrast and mirror fields.
