My maple leafs are very shinny, but the us eagles are dull almost no shine.

The finish is so different on them what up with that?

I like the shinny finish better.

They are 2007, but the maple leafs have a different finish on them thats makes them so much more shinny.

I've noticed early SE seem to have more shine, maybe the dies are being produced with a matte finnish....I think the pre-strike finnish has something to do with it, too. I know the Mint says it's using a different polishing method for the SE blanks with the w mint mark.
