Probably cleaned but market-acceptable. Around VF30 or so.

I'm not so sure I agree with BH on the market acceptable comment. Much better details than the other one you posted but again, I think you need to work on your photography skills. Don't take it personally, I suck to but have improved with my iPhone. I would put it on a desk under a direct light source and tinker around with the positioning. Also, if I use the zoom-in feature and move the camera further away from the coin, I have found that it ups the quality substantially.

@MikeF I'm definitely not taking it personally. I have tried zooming on the smaller coins, and it does improve the focus and thus mage quality (as well as the lighting).

I have ordered a system from Ray (rmpsrpms), so hopefully after a bit of a learning curve, my images will improve.

VF details, cleaned. Perhaps polished. From the pics, it looks completely stripped of originality.

Yes, he shares a lot of information in the photography sub-forum, and has a link to his website in his signature. His coin photos are spectatcular.

I wanted to get a fixed setup for imaging my collection, as well as the items I will sell on ebay. My hope is that the setup I ordered (and following his procedures) will make the picture quality much better and consistent, and the process much less time consuming.

Not sure how the heck people are getting VF35. This coin is AU sharpness with almost no wear on the reverse. I don't think it was cleaned, either, perhaps dipped at one point.

The current and previous Numismatist magazine are running an excellent series about the quality control issues that resulted in these coins being struck so poorly when new, thanks to a combination of mismanagement, ignorance, and cronyism; workers who were upset about the way they, and their workmates, were being treated may have also deliberately sabotaged the production effort by putting absolutely zero effort into the minting and quality control processes. The result is that some of the mid 70s San Fran issues are also some of the poorest-quality issues in the entire Lib Seated coin series across their denominations.

I'm not sure how the heck anyone can grade this coin period. These pictures do NOT provide a well-lit picture of the upper obverse half.

Night vision goggles?

Let me see if I can get some pictures with better lighting. If I can't manage today, then I'll try tomorrow when I get my new toy (photo setup).

This is the best I'm able to manage right now. I put it in the sun near the window, but the sun is pretty low these days. I can't quite get them entirely in focus. I think I need to look into getting new glasses.






Edit: What doesn't come through on these is that the dark areas are a bluish violet toning.
