A:
I have never heard the word 'defective' in numismatic teams so cannot really answer your question ?
UPDATED: 08 Jun 20:40
As I understand it, an impaired proof is a coin struck for collectors, but for some or other unforseen reason, got into circulation (that it was never intended for) or show some unfortunate wear a proof coin should not. Hern grade impaired 1923 gold proofs to even Fine condition, so some might have seen extensive circulation BUT were never intended to circulate. So they would NOT be graded as a proofs but as an Impaired ("used" or "handled") proofs.
