i dident know what forum to put this in. either in grading or varieties, but I think it fits in grading a bit more.

To my eye, this coin appears to be a standard 1962 proof cameo Half.
Field polish appears to be a little under done. This is probably explained by the large numbers of proofs of this date that were produced.

Coin looks to be in otherwise pristine condition.

I have cameo proofs I would call deep cameo but I'm not a grader. I would say you have a shot at deep cameo.

Here is my 1962 pr 67 cameo for comparison

( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )
Searched 6.5 +/- Million Cents Since 1971

Cameo, but I guess it has a shot at deep cameo. Great coin!

tough call on level of CAM without depth of field comparison but to me it looks DCAM. Maybe up to PF66

If I remember right,there is a -proof a proof and a + proof for each level of proof. Example proof 65 cameo -
proof 65 cameo
proof 65 cameo +
Hope that makes sense.
