hi everyone

 

in a lot of coins i bought recently i had five 1887 threepences

 

now these were all ef+ but one of them has a mirror backround to it

and its bugged me that it could be a proof coin that has leaked into circulation

 

i have added a photo of it the best i can

if anyone could confirm this for me i would be most greatful

I am afraid that I, personally, cannot tell from that one photo.

 

More photographs would be ideal.

 

I hope it is a proof though! :ninja:

It could be there were proofs struck in that year.

 

I've also seen some that appear to be proofs but were more proof-like then actual proofs. If they were amoungst the first coins struck on fresh dies they might have prooflike fields.

 

Does the reverse fields have a prooflike appearance? Proofs coins tend to have sharper edges then standard coins and the lettering also appear sharper.
