Description & Analysis

Unlike the silver proofs of this date, the nickels are fairly rare having sufficient contrast between fields and devices to be labeled Cameo. Otherwise, this date is not rare across most grades. It is scarce only in relation to the high-mintage proofs of the 1880s. The typical 1899 proof nickel is well struck on a good planchet.
