Hey guys. I bought a 2000 P+D uncirculated mint set, not a millennium set, and this 2000 D Sacagawea dollar was in the set. I know there are proof like sac dollars from the millennium set, but this is not the millennium set. I was wondering what you guys thought of it. Really polished dies or struck on Proof planchet? The edge looks polished and the coin has a deep mirror to it. I don't see any annealing chatter, only contact marks. I may be wrong but this will be a learning experience, thank you guys.

I'd say that it has a proof-like finish to it. It looks very nice.

My guess is just a highly poished planchet. A proof would have mirror-like surfaces in the field only. Your coin would probably revieve a PL (proof-like) designation in grading. I'm no expert with this grading stuff, but I think this one is just going to be a well-polished planchet.

I agree with that. In hand it, has a proof like finish. She's a nice dollar!

Did they polish circulation strike planchets? I'm not sure really. Also, the reason this coin doesn't have frosty devices and deep mirror field contrast is because the Denver dies weren't polished for proof appearance.


Really I'm just trying to figure out why this coin is so shiny. Probably just fresh dies and nice blanks. But it has such a proof finish to it. I don't know.

You took it out of the mint set? Or someone else did? The obverse looks polished, the reverse looks correct for a normal coin. You can see on the obverse near the rim area where the die wear is showing. But the face area look polished.

It is not a polished coin. I personally took it out of the mint set.

Possible but probably no way to prove it. Rejected proof planchets do get shipped to Denver but I don't know how you would tell a coin struck on the rejected proof planchet from a well struck coin from new dies on a normal planchet.

Conder, I will try to see if there is a way to prove that. Thank you for telling me about the rejected proof planchets. I have time this week to look into my possible error stash and I love diving deep into it haha.
