Jaime Hernandez:

The 1953 Proof Lincoln cent is very scarce with Cameo or Deep Cameo surfaces. With Cameo surfaces it is the third scarcest coin from the 1950 - 1958 proof Wheat cent series. Only the 1951 and 1952 Proof cents are scarcer with Cameo surfaces, with the 1951 being the scarcest.

There are approximately 300 Proof Lincoln cents dated 1953 that exist with Cameo surfaces. With Deep Cameo surfaces there are probably no more than 35 examples that exist in total. The 1950 - 1958 Proof Lincoln cents are considered scarce with any Cameo surfaces, as the Mint did not produce very many of them. With Deep Cameo surfaces, they are even much scarcer. As of 2011, 1950 - 1958 Cameo and Deep Cameo Proof Lincoln cents have become quite popular.
