    The reverse is, not sure about the obverse. Pretty dang close.

    I'd say if you can see the cameo on the obverse strongly without tipping the coin at certain angles , but if you have to tip it to see a strong cameo contrast it isn't . From your pics I'd say yes , with the reverse a lot stronger .

    Neither NGC nor PCGS would NOT designate this as a cameo because both sides of the coin do not have the cameo contrast.

    It looks like this coin was stamped with a newer reverse die and an older obverse die which the frost has worn off.

    It's unfortunate that both dies weren't changed at the same time, then both sides would have a nice cameo.

    As I posted in your other thread about whether this same coin would qualify as a cameo, it'd probably get the CAM designation, but would definitely not get DCAM for the weakness in the obverse face and rim lettering.

    Nice coin. The obverse image makes it tough to tell.

    wouldn't ngc give that coin a star designation?

    Why would they?

    They don't give stars to 90% of Franklin Cameos or DCams.

    This has the look of a typical proof Franklin not quite making a cameo.
