First time posting here in the grading forum. Found this one CRH. Think it is a proof coin. What's the best way to determine Proof, Cameo and Deep Cameo? I have more pictures of the facial features, but it appears that protocol here is one photo of each obverse/reverse. Thanks all!

Looks like a brilliant proof (no cameo) and being found in circulation makes it an impaired proof.

So the newbie in me has to ask- Does "Impaired Proof" simply mean it saw circulation or are there other means for them to become impaired? How does it affect value? Probably will keep the coin even if it is "Impaired"- it is the best looking "older" coin that I have found so far in my fledgling hobby.

"Impaired" can mean many things, including being carelessly mishandled even though the specimen never made it into circulation.

Value would be less than a non impaired coin,kinda like a "details" coin would be.

What would an approximate grade for this coin be? Just trying to give myself a baseline.

According to the Professional Coin Grading Service, an impaired proof is "a proof coin that grades less than PR-60; a circulated proof." Unfortunately, not every proof coin is kept in the best condition.


your coin has seen circulation. a circulated proof coin would not grade as proof as the grades begin at PF60. this coin if it graded at the lowest proof value would have a value of about .45 so your coin really doesn't have much value at all since its an impaired proof. however it is not that common to find in circulation

Cameo refers to frosting on the devices, esp on the portrait. Virtually all proof coins made since about 1985 display such a cameo frosting. Before about 1970, few coins exhibited cameo frosting. Your coin has no frosting, which is the most common type of 1958 proof.
