Only 14 coins received a CAM designation and only 1 coin received a DCAM designation.
My personal opinion (today) is that 18 of the coins warranted a CAM designation and 1 warranted a DCAM designation.
How many 1953 proofs in all do you have? Would you want to post them as a group if you have more?
Off of the top of my head I think I have between 6 to 8 1953 Proof half dollars. Still waiting for Trueviews to post on 4 of them.
Since no one else has guessed yet, I will provide the answer.
Coin #31 received a DCAM designation.
A CAM designation was received by coin #s 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28 and 30.
I think coin #s 1, 7, 21 and 29 should have received a CAM designation.
I was quite a bit heavy with my DCAM allowance, but I was pretty nearly exact with what you said if we say CAM at a minimum.
I agree with you that 7, 21, and 29 should have gotten it. I do not think number 1 deserves the CAM.
Wow... Nice Franklins... I started to guess, then I realized how many there were and stopped... have to head to work. Coin 31 certainly deserves the DCAM. Cheers, RickO
Beautiful group of proof franklins!

What have you learned from this submission, if anything, about the requirements and standard for Cameo and Deep Cameo designations at PCGS??
Wow @SanctionII these look great. Cam and Dcam Franklins are something to admire. I would love to put together a set sometime. Thanks for the inspiration.

@SanctionII I see at least one variety in that that mix, pointed out to me by an expert. Check your inbox.
Thanks for the heads up.
I will take a close look at the coin to learn about the variety.
