Hi,
Looking for opinions on this coin. Is it a business or proof strike.?
Describe the main factor that influenced your decision.
The picture has been lightened to better see details.
Thanks

Not my area but looks none proof,does not look like a sharp strike or squared off rims. If it is a proof, it would be an impaired proof.

I'm not seeing any signs of a proof surface, even in the most protected areas of the surface. My guess is this is a business strike.
Here's photos of a proof.

Well, the date positions are different so at the very least they were stuck by 2 different dies. Go to Heritage and look to see if there are more dies used to strike the proofs.

Certainly a business strike due to the quality of the detail and the flat rims. For a Three Cent Nickel, this has a decent strike.

Aref yeah that is a die match to the OP's coin. Guess it is probably a proof then. Boo!
