Hard to tell with the resolution.
Looks likely to be frosted.

It is difficult to tell the difference from photos.

But I seem to recall a thread where Birdman SANDAC and myself analyze the width of the
mirror on the leg, which goes along with which mint it came from.

http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=9988.0

Yours is a Wide Leg, that indicates Shenyang,
Thus Frosted .
 
But  remember its not actually as rare as the population figures
state, since many Frosted are mislabeled  as Mirror.

Really, no need to thank me.

Oh wait ! I understand , you are letting me know I used a pic YOU had posted, and not
given acknowledgement ? LOL !
Oh, well here ya go:  

Everyone - that was wg's pic he had posted that I used for demonstrating the point.

Cheers!
