Hello CCF,

Coins a raw; in-hand.

1954:
I took several pictures using various lighting; no enhancements were made.

1957:
Cut from an original proof set recently. Has interesting purple/green toning.

Please share you thoughts on grade, eye appeal and/or toning. Also, could either of these be considered a CAM or DCAM?

Thanks!

The 1954 is all right, both no cameo but the 1957 looks sneezed on.

I don't care for this type of toning on silver proof coins . None of these are cameo or deep cameo . The 57 I would sell for scrap . JMHO .

54 is nice. 57 not. No cameo nor DC.

Sorry but neither look that good to me. Toning on modern proof is a turn off to me but the strike also looks week especial on the reverse. Probably no more than a proof 65/66 which for the years in question mean low value. Just my opinion..

The '54 is better than the '57.

The 1954 has very nice toning! The '57 is odd, but definitely not scrap.
