Thanks, I like the appearance of this one a lot. The seller has a 1903_+ graded IHP proof out there for sale as well which looks similar to this but better. I tracked him down via a youtube video for the most amazing raw 1904 ihp proof I had ever seen which was sold 18 months earlier at the time.....check out that video

If it gives off that in a 2x2 I can just imagine it outside the 2x2. He knows if it ever comes back his way again to let me know.....but for now this 1907 is a good hold-me-over proof.
good to pass on the coin show ICG proof. Stick to your guns on the coin show budgets and what you were looking for from the beginning. I wouldn't want to buy that early then walk around a bit and see something else I like even more with the budget spent. If it's going to happen make sure it's after you perused all the aisles first. LOL. That way you can justify the altering of the budget.
I don't go to a show looking for anything specific. I just look to add to the collection. I have certain series I look for above others, and do the walk around first. It has to be a VERY good looking coin for me to buy it before I make my first trip around.
@Grapecollects: I don't think that's a proof, the fields look more like a business strike.
