Re: One more guys...for my education Is PROOF the same as SP

YQQ, and MM, thanks dor the post, and questions, as well as the info presented, and also provided by the "dictionary. It has answered some of MY questions, but there are still a few left. PL, has always confused me, in that they are as our US "Mint strkies. and my understanding was that they were also struck with WORKING dies, NOT prood dies. the difference being in the preparation od both the dies, AND blanks, or planchets. A "specimen", is to me, a different composition of alloys, made especially for that purpose, e.g. the minting od a coin with the same criteria as a coin would hace, to test its ability to withstand the day-to-day, circulation wear, and handling. I understant the PL are now considered the same "class" as proof, correct? Specimens were nerer intended to circulate, as were the normal alloyed planchets were. All comments, opinions, and corrections welcomed.
