Here's an excellent deal on a nice objective for coins. The Nikon MPlan 5 is a step up from the M5 primarily in that it has a longer working distance due to the 210mm extension rather than the normal 160mm of the M5. I can't vouch for seller or condition, but if all works out it's quite a nice objective for a great price.

Been a while since I posted an El-Cheapo, but this one really deserves the attention. I will also cross-post it to the <$400 setup, since it fills a niche there in place of the recommended Nikon M5, which is often hard to find. This one actually might be a bit better for coins due to the longer working distance, though the M5 is tough to beat for image quality.

This M5 LWD objective is probably of Chinese origin, but one of the best 4x objectives I own was made in China, so I am origin-agnostic:

At $27.50, you really can't go wrong with this one.
