Hi guys, I found this Kennedy not too long ago. 1966 SMS. I actually had this specific coin in a few of my previous threads. Found in a junk silver tray at a Pawn Shop. Anyway, would you guys consider this coin to be a Cameo? Now, I am most certainly aware of the fingerprint and/or haze. I also must mention, it also has a DDO profile and in ,"in God We Trust", going for it as well. But my main concern is to determine if it does have that Cameo appearance? Thanks guy's :)

    I think it’s close but the portrait just isn’t there.

    Really hard to tell from that picture.

    My real question, if a coin does receive that elusive "Cameo/Deep or Ultra" designation. Is it still possible to receive that determination even though the coin doesn't reach the MS level? :*

    Unless I am missing something the coin is 60+, so that is a moot point.

    Does it get Cameo? Maybe but I doubt it.

    Ultra / Deep Cameo? Probably less than no chance.

    Not cameo from your pictures. But you’re the only one who can view the coin in hand and should be able to tell whether it’s a Cameo. It does no good to post unrepresentative photos and ask for opinions.

    Joey is that a finger print behind POTUS head?

    these can be hard to differentiate with good quality pictures, as MF stated, these pictures are no help. the primary concern for the designation is clarity and depth of the fields/mirrors.

    The photos are all over the place just as the fingerprints seem to be. Not worth submitting.

    It is soo hard sometimes to see cameo in pictures. Depending on lighting and angle, can look cameo in spots and not in others. It would probably be easier to compare side by side to another cameo.

    Too fingerprinty for my taste.

    Just misses the cameo, and you have an obvious fingerprint on the obverse. Save your money.

    Very hard to give an unqualified opinion on cameo rating from pictures. This is evident from the several you posted which could give a couple of yes/no's.... I would say it is unlikely. Cheers, RickO
