One That Got Away?

Recommended Posts

Yes, that one had better look improved with in-hand inspection. At times they are puzzlers for sure, and given that there are some superb specimens out there of this date and denomination would be a "hard pass" as they say these days...

That obverse looks absolutely terrible for a proof.

That's extremely ugly, esp for a proof. Horrid toning, weak strike, just bad eye appeal.

Sorry, I have to agree with @ozjohn and @SilverAge3 - there's wear to the obverse and it just doesn't look like a proof at all.
