DCAM vs CAM, how noticeable is the difference?
I am not experienced with proofs other than seeing modern proof sets. I really haven't see many in hand, my location does not give me the opportunity to view coins in hand. I have seen plenty of pictures and I would like to add one to the collection. The appearance of the same coin can have drastic differences just on light angles... black mirrors with ice frost or shinny reflective fields and not so much contrast. I have been looking at a couple of proof seated liberty quarters but they are from different sellers with different lighting.
My options are 64+DCAM or 65CAM for about the same money. There is a 65+CAM for a bit more. I see a 66+DCAM I would like to snag but I expect that will far exceed my budget when it sells. I like the look of the 64+DCAM with the black and white contrast. A couple field marks are probably responsible for the 64 grade. The CAMs just don't seem to have that contrast I like but I also feel part of that is in the photography.
So for you guys with experience with proofs, Is there going to be much noticeable difference between a 64+DCAM and a 65CAM? I would be interested to hear your experience on the pros and cons of each of the two grades. Touching on the frost and contrast mostly. Of course this is in general as photos are not presented here and if they were, they are taken with different lighting and angle methods.
