Jaime Hernandez: In 1936 the U.S. Mint struck two different versions of Proof Cents. It struck a Satin Proof and it also struck the Brilliant Proof. The Brilliant Proof appears to be more common that the Satin Finish but both finishes are scarce. The Brilliant Proofs have a mirror proof like finish and are considered scarce in PR66 condition and higher. In PR67 they are very scarce with less than a handful of examples known to exist in this condition and none being finer.
