I have a few silver proof quarters that I think might grade as cameos. I have noticed that most listing for Washies on EBay are in NGC holders. Is there a reason for this? I remember when these were a hot item years back. By looking at the prices now, looks as if they tanked. I might just buy a few now that the prices have come down. Any thoughts on the upside potential of these coins.

Check the "population" report on each date and mint to see how many are out there (available).  Some, if not all of these have had some major population bumps as submitters have sent new found gems in for grading.  You're doing it right.  Buy low, sell high.

Looking at the population report 68’s in cameo range from 150 to 6 or 7 hundred many 2 or 3 hundred. The cameo 69s

From the early 50s are in single numbers.

What dates are you looking at ? Prior to 1950 none have been certified cameo. After 1960 heavy cameo should be considered collectable. 1950, 51 and 52 should be put away when nice cameos are found.

And from 1992 on they should ALL be cameo or better
