I hate posts like this, because then I have to pull out my box of proof sets, which is heavy and way on the top shelf of the closet, and check my set for them same error. And...nope.
Pretty cool though.

Anyone else have one of these?

I saw this thread and looked through eBay... Seemed like every other coin had the figures on the reverse shiny and not frosted. I thought maybe it was just the lighting in the photos so I bought one on a whim. Got it today and, sure enough, it had shiny unfrosted people.

@coinsearchre: Can we get a picture?
I wonder if the flaw was on the master die (never got the frosting added properly and not transferred to the working dies.)

It is hit or miss

I have bought 2 that looked the same in the pictures

One was the normal version and the other was an error


I think this will eventually be considered a variation or "Type 1 and Type 2" situation instead of an error

I found one eBay seller that had 5 for sale the image showing the altered frosting version. So I bought all 5 (at $10.00/coin) on a whim. Lets see what I get. Heck I can always re-sell them if they turn out to be 'normal' Or if one of them looks better than the one I have in my Dansco album, I'll swap it out.

One thing I'm not doing is pointing out the lack of the frosting on these coins yet. (it's a secret)

I have been sending this image to sellers to use as a way to verify coins

The blue areas are very frosted and the red areas are different but not frosted

The rest should be mirror like
