   The weakness at the tips of some of the feathers and the diamond design on the ribbon suggest that the coin is not a proof strike.  The pinkish color suggests that the coin may have been "cleaned".  I would need to see the coin in-hand to get a better idea as to both of these issues.

You spoiled it too soon.:smile: It would have been interesting to see what others had to say.

Is it not a proof?  Im not very knowledgeable on these. Ive not looked at enough to make calls but if I didnt see the label I would have thought it was a circulation strike. I am still a newbie though.

What makes you think there is something wrong with this?

If there is something wrong, resubmit it for reconsideration or cross-grading.

I was hoping more would have guessed at this one. Ive been very curious to the answer. I never got the chance to read @Sandon reply before it was deleted.

The slab should read MS 63 RB. It's way too late to have ANACS correct it. It's also not worth the fees to have it properly graded. I thought this thread might be interesting but I was wrong.

@Hoghead515--I have restored the deleted content.

    It is interesting, and it is instructive. One has to look carefully at all coins, including certified ones.  What is printed on that little paper tag may not be correct.  In this case a proof is, of course, more valuable than a circulation issue, and one wouldn't want to buy this coin priced as a proof.  

   I have an 1867 Liberty Seated dime PCGS graded PR 62, but it is clearly an example of the F-102 (Greer 103) die variety, which is considered by both Fortin and Greer only to exist as a circulation strike. In this case, the circulation strike is priced much higher than the proof. Having the coin reexamined and its status corrected is something that I'll hopefully get around to.

Thank you. I cant believe I got it right on my first guess. If I hadnt seen it in the holder I would have thought it was a circulation strike.That was my first guess was it was labeled wrong.  It didnt have that proof appearance to it. I been curious the past couple days and  I wasnt sure I was correct or not. Thanks for confirming it. This was a educational thread for me and probably newer collectors like me. This is my 4th year of collecting and reading books in the hobby and Im still totally lost on alot of things. Im learning more every day though.
