Frosting? by Bruce Remick
I just received my 2010 America the Beautiful quarter proof set from the Mint. IMO, they have gone *way* overboard in producing the frosted appearance to the point that little detail is left on the raised features after the apparent "sandblasting". The business strike quarters will surely...
