Seller jwcameo, I've bought a few things from them before and have been happy with them.
I was close to pulling the trigger on this one but someone saved me from myself and beat me to it. The Franklin in this set looks really nice, along with the rest of the coins.
Anyone here buy it? I'd be interested in hearing if its as nice as it looks in the listing if you are willing to share.

    I don't think any of those coins are going CAM, but someone may get a nice half. I'd be interested to see what it looked like in hand as well.

    Definitely no cameo but a much nicer than average set.

    not me but i agree the half AND cent look promising.

    i'm kinda impressed these are still enough of these floating around to be seen fairly regularly.

    whatever material they used for those, should have been used on a lot of other coins based on the sets i've seen. they don't seem to cause, pvc, spotting, corrosion, toning etc. perhaps those have seen more have seen different?

    That seller has photograph skills that accentuate the contrast between the fields and devices. Many times the coins in the photos look like Cameos but they are not.

    If the coins did warrant a Cameo designation I suspect the seller would have them graded (instead of selling them raw and leaving money on the table).

    That seller knows what they are doing and if those coins would have done better already certified then it is my bet you would have seen them in TPG holders instead of waving to you raw.
