Proof Like vs Mint State Coins

Post by remo558 » Fri Jan 15, 2010 9:39 pm

Hello, how do PL coins vary from MS coins in value?
I have a 1963 $.01 that is ICCS rated as PL-65, red, ultra heavy cameo - any idea of its value? Thanks.

PL coins usually worth less than circulated coins.

Doesn't mean it's not a great coin.

It is a VERY nice coin - l am a new collector and I was very happy to find this coin - it looks like it was minted yesterday! Thanks for the links and comments.

Despite the difference in value between MS and PL it's still about collecting what you like. While I certainly enjoy MS state coins I'm always digging to have the nicest PL sets I can. I really enjoy PL cameos because the contrast is so startling against the PL polished backgrounds.
