I will have a new phone next week.
My present phone is so many generations back it does little and very different from this phone that I am getting. I would appreciate some info on best settings to use that this site accepts. I know it does jpeg and I will have to learn all features, some info would be helpful if anyone knows.

@wcr, presumably you have seen the tutorial on posting images (link below just in case not).

A few tips and pearls:

1. well lit
2. in focus
3. cropped to the edge of the coin
4. white background
5. no larger than 300 k
6. hold the phone horizontally so that your images aren't accidentally rotated 90 degrees
7. include overalls of both the obv and rev plus one or two close-ups of any areas of interest

Place the phone on a stack of books (or other object) so it is steady and camera lenses is directly over the coin. Set the phone to take pictures with a voice command - ie smile, capture etc... you could also look for a tripod or other method to hold the camera steady while you take the photo without touching the camera (which introduces some shake). Good luck - look forward to seeing some pictures.

Some phones you can set a delay so the shake will be eliminated
