Not sure how to grade these but at least PR 65 I would say.

Seriously? I'll go with PR67 since I literally can't see anything wrong with it.

Here's the grade. I'm very happy with the coin, it looks incredible in hand. Unbelievably flashy, even for a proof. The only marks I could see with the naked eye are two small spots in front of the face (visible in the pics next to the 3rd star on the left). This coin went to CAC today, I will report back if it passes but I think it's unlikely.

Unfortunately I didn't buy the coin to keep, but I expect it to take a while before I find a buyer, and I'm perfectly okay with that

I have only just now reviewed this thread.
Very difficult to grade from on screen pictures PF or MS 65 to 70.

In this case, I am a Johnny-come-lately.

Nonetheless, the result PF-68 Cameo for this coin does not surprise me

I don't see why John wouldn't give this a green bean.

This is a Superb coin!

My one concern is that they may feel it's not quite cameo enough for a bean, I know they're tough on CAM designations. As far as surface preservation goes though, this one is fantastic. Like I said, there's only two or three very very small specks on the obverse of the coin, I believe it's well deserving of a 68. The brilliance of it is also spectacular. I very rarely see proof V-Nickels with super bright luster like this one. Most are washed out and cloudy.

If it doesn't get a bean I'll likely cross it to PCGS and hope they agree with the 68CAM grade.

Update: I had send an email off to CAC a little while ago asking if they could reveal if the coin had already been to CAC. They got back to me today saying the coin had been there and did NOT sticker. I already sent my submission off so the coin will get rereviewed anyway, but it's not looking good unfortunately.

Oh well, not a huge deal. Next step is to see if it crosses to PCGS...

Question I've always asked. Bean attempt worth it before cross to PCGS attempt?
