    What does the obverse look like?

    I can imagine. If its a legitimate question, why not show the whole coin?

    Well, it could be a newly discovered two tail wheat back/front.

    Yea I was thinking it could be the elusive 1934 matte proof.

    Looks to me like a 1959 with mismatched wheat ears reverse. Very rare.

    Go to the HA Auction Archive and look at images of this and other dates in proof. Nothing like 10 or 20 images on the same page to compare with each other. RBs and RDs will give you clearer views, but color analysis is premature. First, soak up the overall fabric, then search for previous threads here about the proof characteristics. There are plenty.

    The MPL's squared rims are one of the easiest ways to tell. The rim for the coin in the OP isn't squared off.

    Not a proof but a very nice business strike.
