If I'm posting in the wrong place, forgive me and suggest the proper forum. I'm a newby here.

I'm an avid collector of graded PF70 US coins, in particular, DCAM,UCAM varieties. I wanted to buy some direct from the US Mint to save money. But nothing about cameo production is listed its web page. Also, their chat room has denies it produces such coins -- yet they are plentiful and collectible.

Can anybody educate me on where I might go to buy such coins from the source?

DCAM and UCAM are given during grading, and it's more significant with older proof coins. Just about every proof coin coming directly from the Mint today is going to get those designations when sent in for grading. Older coins may/not be DCAM/UCAM (or even just CAM).

The only way to buy 70 coins is on the secondary market since they have to go to a TPG first. If possible, I would also wait a year or two before buying them so that the hype around getting the current year dies down.
