Nice little upgrade for my 91o set

Post by lured_in_again » Tue Mar 29, 2022 11:34 pm

Was able to pick up VAM 1C (G clash) in MS 62, previous top pop. in SSDC was AU 58. Easy to see the G clash in hand, hard to photograph with my setup.

Beautiful coin, thanks for sharing.
But out of pure nosiness, what do you use for photography?

Most of my photos (anything smaller than full size Morgan) come from an old Tasco digital microscope that has 10x, 60x, and 120x options. The Morgans I photograph with full size photos are from a Celestron digital microscope that has 10x to 40x, and 150x options. I mounted the celestron on a homemade stand with the ability to move it up or down to enable viewing the entire coin. Both very cheap options to take photos directly on my computer and be able to post them. Lighting is usually just what comes with those 2 scopes, but I sometimes use a small lamp to add light as needed.

Thanks. I use a slightly modified drill press, and if my photos are left wanting, it is my fault.
