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

Canada didn't have "proofs" till 1981. But since the highest quality striking was specimen, some people refered to them as proof. Prooflike in the USA can be used to describe a business strike with mirror fields. In canada Mr Charlton started the term to describe the strike for the white-carded and pliofilm mint sets starting 1954. These prooflikes were struck with specially prepared dies and handled carefully, but the blanks were not specially prepared. If you examine a 1964 silver dollar in prooflike, you can see pre-striking bag marks that were not struck-out. Things have changed a bit in recent years with regards to business strikes going into pliofilm holders and the term numismatic BU. des'nt help the topic from being a little less grey.

PS. no need to appologize for bring a topic other than large cent varieties to the forum, its a refreshing change.
