Was wondering if this could possibly get a cameo designation, I know it's only opinions on photos, just looking for the more experienced opinion(s), I got it in a mint set at auction last year, I appreciate opinions20220525_162722.thumb.jpg.7e5c41788ab5f9bc48a0f1aa5fec5da8.jpg20220525_161544.thumb.jpg.37761d6654a37c9655ef9540ef2e76d5.jpg20220525_161557.thumb.jpg.50b167fa38d245f481f9f1001ee620cb.jpg

I can't comment on the Cameo aspect from those photos, but your coin clearly is not the Accented Hair variety.

Welcome to the forum.
In addition to the coin not being the Accented Hair variety, it doesn’t appear to be a Cameo, either.

However -- it is a profile.... OK, not much consolation, but think positive.

Curious as to how it is not, when the dye markers are all there, I'm not questioning or saying anybody's wrong I don't have enough experience to say that I'm just curious as to why do you come to that conclusion? The only reason I asked is because I've received a different opinion want to know they're popular forum, again I am looking to learn and dont mean to come off like I'm disagreeing  thank u again it's much appreciated IMG_20220525_203000_HDR.thumb.jpg.5e3618a55ece5834c57ede9fbfedadba.jpg16535253128317187151800249160111.thumb.jpg.4a6c1e73fa6d009de90e09b2c1961bd5.jpg

Another easy way to tell is by looking at the sideburn - it’s flat, rather than defined on Accented Hair examples.

The serif on the ‘I’ is not right for the Accented Hair.

And the FG has a crosslet G, rather than the plain G found on Accented Hair halves.

because I've received a different opinion

That’s the thing in this hobby - there are always people offering “different opinions” that are just dead wrong. Many of them even operate as coin dealers.
