Help Needed: Validation if these Proofs exist?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I was speaking to a dealer who offered the following:-

1) QE2 2013 India (Proof on a card) - 5th portrait <-- I didn't find any with a frosty proof finish
2) QE2 2016 (Proof) - 5th portrait standard [non butler effigy] [there are about 1.6k minted?]
3) QE2 2017 (Proof) - 5th portrait standard [without garter] <--- I couldn't find details about them online except for the privy ones.

Are they real as described?

Cheers!

They wouldnt issue proofs on a card. Also  - no india proofs issued for that year.

As far as I am aware - only Butler Effigy proof exists for that year. Also 7.5K minted.

Again only a garter edge proof exists for that year.

Probably these instead, so not proof but BU or bullion

Yes indeed the recent years DPL has a small batch mislabeled of Deep Proof Like as Proof, the mislabeled however was not recalled & corrected. However the process of calling a spade a spade was implemented, and Deep Proof Like is now as it is DPL / DMPL. Not a proof but a proof look alike. 

When the coin’s reflection is place against a line. A prooflike coin should have a minimum of 2-4 inches visible, while for a coin to be a deep-mirror prooflike it should have as much as 6-8 inches of lines clearly visible.
