Ultra Cameo???



I was offered a penny that stuck in my head for a while. A 1971 PF69* Cameo. The price was great compared to the high of a UC price but there was no pic to see what was the reason for the star on a Cameo coin. After a week or so I decided to find out just how close this PF69*C coin was to PF69UC and purchased it.

Love It!!!


Here's a pic

I don't think spotting has anything to do with a Cameo or UC designation. That is applied to the amount of contrast only. The spotting can affect the numerical grade though. You are correct on the reverse being the limiting factor. UC obverse, and Cameo reverse gives you a Cameo Star.
