So far, Mirror, in most denominations is most common.
500y its 52 F/ 190 M
200y its  8 F / 64 M
100y its  34 F/ 48 M
50y
20y is the exception at 98 F / 67 Mirror

But I there is reason to think some are mis categorized.

That being said, its not super easy to distinguish especially with angle
and lighting and I've seen especially early submissîons, mislabelled "Mirror" when they were Frosted, I am guessing because owners were asking for Mirror designation thinking that they would command a premium like the 2000 Mirror, when in fact it was opposite and Frosted 2003 were actually scarcer.

I'm new here. I'd like to know what the difference is between mirror and frosted.  Which part of the coin is supposed to be frosted?  Are there photos anywhere showing the difference?  I have a couple of 2003 but they look the same to me.
