I Stumbled back across this proof LMC today this while looking for some holders I keep in a tackle box. I thought I had lost it and never had a chance to look at it up-close when I received the proof set several years back. I think it might have been worth the wait and was pleasantly surprised to see this nice doubling on the date and "RUST" (mainly the "UST" but this coin does appear to have a small notch on the upper right hand corner of the "R" as well). There are a ton of listings for this date, so I was hoping to get some opinions on the exact listing as well as the grade and maybe even an approximate value. Thanks for taking a look.

Yeah I was debating on whether to take a pictures outside capsule so I went ahead and just left it in there to be on the safe side. Thanks for your reply.

PR-69 Dcam:

PR-68 Dcam:

Note price drops.
PR-67 Dcam:

$45, not worth grading. Cost more for fees than you would get back. This is the Dcams. Not the cameos or normal proof cents. (which are common to find)

Normal Proofs:
PR-68
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/05018013
$45 (highest grade shown in the normal proofs)
PR-67
https://www.PCGS.com/cert/36580630
$25 Not worth the expense to have them graded.

Looks like the real deal. My guess is WDDO-006, like you originally claimed.

Wow...i thought there might have been more of a value differential between a normal high grade proof and one that is doubled. Is that because the 006 is fairly common and or in low demand? I definitely was thinking about sending in for grading and confirmation, but it seems like it might not be worth it because of slim margins involved here...

Got some decisions to make.. Thanks for the feedback

Here's some better pictures of the reverse. I also didn't realize that the known population of 68s and 69s combined doesn't even equal 500, with only 30 or so givin the 69 grade...ok so I got goosebumps now... would be pretty sweet if it panned out. Thanks again for the input!

Does this qualify as deep cameo you guys think? With these images I was intentionally trying to get reflection off of the obverse and reverse, but I'm not sure ultimately how they came out and I may be able to do better are the different type of approach or maybe even trying to pick up something different in the reflection. Attached here are some quick pics showing how the obverse and reverse fields reflect an image of my fingernail.

Nice variety but not a cameo or a 68 from what I can see in your full coin shots. (A little spot/blemish above the E of CENT)
