I showed this one , but it was the still I had....this really shows off the color.....and now the reverse is starting to tone as well...just beginning....but my camera battery just died before I could get a shot off of the reverse.I really hope the back reverse is just a strong as the obverse one day. Time will tell.

the camera won't pick up the color if I add more light. If you want to see a plain coin that I can do.

burnzy, it looks like you have some really nice coins, but the photos are not showing your coins at their best.

I use a desktop Ottlite with daylight LED bulbs that brings out the color on coins. The desktop lamp allows me to move the light around to get a straight on photo and capture the coin color. I use a dark or light background depending on the coin. My camera is a cheap point and shoot Canon. Here are a couple of samples of color.

If I shoot the coin from straight on with any light on it shows no color whatsoever but I'll give that a go. they are at Walmart.

I have had my "OttLite Natural Daylight LED Flex Lamp" - White about 4 years. I got a recommendation to buy the daylight LED bulbs for coin photos, but I do not remember where it came from. Walmart is out of stock on the lamp, and they have a replacement for $73. This desklamp is getting hard to find as it appears it getting phased out. I found it on Amazon sold by overstock.com for $54. Here is a photo of what I use.


Good luck on taking your photos. If you decide to buy, I hope it helps. If you do get it, I would be happy to give you some ticks I learned to bring out the color.
