    That's because none were minted.

    It's not a proof coin. It's a circulated, business strike coin with EF-AU details that appears to have been at least partially holed (look at the reverse) and might also have been polished.

    San Francisco did not make Proofs then.

    I was thinking exactly what @TomB said and want to add retoned.

    Not a proof coin and - as noted above - partially 'holed' on the reverse.... Looks XF, low AU.... Cheers, RickO

    Experts have spoken, it is what they say it is, sorry if you had higher expectations on this one.
