About 1865 CAM 3-Cent Nickels (Proof)
The 1865 Proof Three Cent Nickel is the first and scarcest of its series coming from a mintage of just 500 coins. Scarcity gradually increases from PR60 through PR67 without any major price jumps. Gems would be considered rare with high-end gems being very difficult to locate. Attractive color and strong strikes can be found with some serious searching. Cameos and deep cameos are extremely rare and bring a hefty premium.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles.
