1953 5C, DCAM PR67+ DCAM Certification #34065725, PCGS #94185

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1953 Proof Jefferson Nickel is fairly common as over 120,000 coins were struck for this issue. The 1953 Proof Jefferson Nickel becomes scarce in PR68 condition or higher. However, there are still hundreds of examples that grade PR68 but they usually sell at a much higher premium than PR67 examples. Examples in PR69 are truly scarce with less than a dozen known and none surviving in any finer condition. This issue is also very scarce in Deep Cameo condition. At PCGS we have seen less than two dozen examples that display a Deep Cameo surface for this issue.
