Description & Analysis

All 1937 proof nickels are fully brilliant, but an extremely small number display enough contrasting texture on their devices to be designated Cameo.

This issue is plentiful, but the demand from type collectors is quite high and keeps values high, as well. No proofs of this coin type were made for 1938, as it was already known at the beginning of the year that a new Jefferson Nickel was on its way.
