Not sure how the matte proof luster works, but reminds me of a pebbled version of a brilliant if that makes sense.

Doesn't match either matte proof obverse die, Albrecht Obverse 1 or 2 , not Albrecht Reverse 1 or 2 either, means it can't be a matte proof.

Parallel die scratches between the top of the IB of PLURIBUS. From a cratch on the master reverse die. Found on Lincoln cent matte proof reverses between 1910 and 1914.

The die scratches above 'D' aren't correct

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any proof dies in the Lincoln series being used for business strikes. If this isn't a matte proof, it is a business strike with a VEDS obverse and VEDS reverse. Given the mint's habit in this era of changing one die at a time, a VEDS-VEDS die pairing would be a rare critter.

One question. Aren't the rims on matte proofs usually smooth, rather than granulated?

Coin was heavily whizzed and cleaned. Real easy to see in your videos, no cartwheel effect, diffused luster.

That's why I posted the video, it reminds me of how a brilliant proof refracts light, but with a really grainy surface. I thought only later die state proofs had luster? I'm here to learn.

They should all have a matte luster. This one has been whizzed.

You guys are going to make me start looking for these.
I'm watching one right now but they want too much for it!

I just go by the coins on CoinFacts. Not sure if I'm seeing all of the dies on there but a good start.
