How much are my U.S. 1875 with deep cameo-contrast surfaces 20-Cent piece worth?

About 1875 DCAM 20-Cent Pieces (Proof)

The 1875 Proof Twenty Cent Piece is the first year of issue for this extremely short series that is very highly desired by collectors; and therefore, the first struck in proof format. It is one of the two proof type coins (the other being from 1876) from the 4 total issues that is relatively common with a mintage of 2,790. This mintage is quite high for proof issues of this denomination. This date is decently scarce from the AU range all the way through MS66. The value escalates at a gradual pace up until the finest known grade of PR67, which is rare. As cameo and deep cameo pieces go there is an expected, yet subtle, premium. The survival estimate for the date is 600 although just 124 have a Cameo designation from PCGS and NGC and only 6 exist in Deep Cameo. Deep Cameos are very rare across all Twenty Cent dates.

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.
