On the 1974 S, I'm pretty sure that it's Machine Doubling, since the mint mark also shows doubling. On the 1953, I can't really tell what's going on. You'll need sharper and in focus pictures for that one.

Cool thanks! I'm still having trouble with my lighting and angles. Do you see the notches on the S and T of trust?

@Crazybo yes there's definitely notches where you pointed out. Hard to get the pics I want I can see it clearly while examining without taking pics but once I grab my phone it blurs everything

You said you have an iPhone.

Try the following for iPhone photography of coins. Our member Darth Morgan has come up with an incredible set up.

http://goccf.com/t/160092

Note Darth was going for (and made) "perfect" pics. I use a much less sophisticated version. I put my iPhone on a stack of books (or whatever). I have no special light hood, just a couple of desk lamps.

But I am not out for perfect (color/luster) pictures, just pics that will show details. My throw together system based on his works well for that. As an example:



I had two desklamps pointed at this and looked at the image onscreen to make the lighting look presentable.

Center the coin on the screen, set a 2 second timer so you don't move the iPhone when you take the pic, tap the screen to get it to focus where you want on the coin, take the pic.

I take several just to make sure.

Hope this helps.
