Description & Analysis

This is among the more available matte proofs of the Lincoln design. Even so, the number of survivors displaying original red color is quite small.

The term "matte" is misleading, as these are actually satin proofs. The coins were not sandblast after striking like the gold proofs, but rather have the natural texture imparted by the dies. Since the models for the Lincoln Cent had textured surfaces to reduce glare, a style in vogue among artists at the time, this feature is most evident on proofs due to their fuller strikes. In addition, the proof dies were lightly sandblasted to give them the fine, crystalline grain unique to the proofs.
