Hello, I'm a beginner in the world of tokens. I've first learned, that this is the place to be to obtain the knowledge, by talking to a few very nice people in this forum. I have a token that I'd like to eventually sell, but I need to get it's proper discription, and better pictures. I'm going to put up the pictures I have, if I do it right. I welcome any feedback. This sutler token says, "J. W. Cruikshank, 10 cent. 81, Reg. O. V. I.", on one side, and has a picture of a mug on the other side, with wheat chaff and flowers arched around it. I already know that is a token from the 81st Regiment of the Ohio Voluntery Infantry, and it's an R-7 rarety. ok, now I'm going to try to put the pictures up. Here goes.
What I do BuckeyeGal is when I upload the pic to the computer its usually in jpg format , I open it in paint which comes with all computers , its then in a bmp format and much magnified,save it as a jpg in the magnified format and you have a much closer look at your coin..it can be amazing.
