Can someone please help me ID this ASE coin. It passes sigma test, passes weight test, passes magnet test. The Mint did not make a reverse proof in 2002. They only released a Proof in business strike but it has a reverse proof finish. I can't find it anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Its possible to polish a whole coin then laser the portions you want frosted. Not saying thats what you have, just that it is possible.

In 2002 the mint only released a W proof. Since you have no mint mark, it's most likely a bullion some one in the secondary market reverse proofed.

That's my guess as well. Just like the antiqued, blackened, colorized versions you see from some of the online retailers.

I personally like how it looks, but agree it looks to be after market someone did to a bullion. Might get a few bucks over spot from someone who would appreciate the "work" done on it.

That's a coin a poker player would likely buy to use to protect their cards when playing a live game.
