what does a coin need to be graded with Ultra Cameo  :confused1:

"cameo (deep cameo, ultra cameo, or cam)
- usually refers to the looks of a proof coin, where the background design has a mirror like look and the raised design has a frosted look to it.  This contrast gives the resulting proof coin a cameo type affect.  Deep cameo and ultra cameo describe the same cameo affect and imply that the cameo look is very pronounced and easily observed.  This cameo affect is the norm for modern day proof coins, however it is rarely found on coins made for general circulation and is less common on coins minted prior to the mid-1960's.  Attractive early cameo coins often sell for substantial premiums over non-cameo's of the same date and mint mark."
