How do you get these pics to be so big on the page? I'm assuming they are also optimized to 300kb or less? I'm stymied.

I can get them in 1080p and larger and still under 300kb. It's a matter of how you do it. I just have it encoded to save data without loss of image quality or size.

You need image editing software that lets you adjust the amount of jpg compression to your preference. More compression means smaller file size. Too much compression makes the image appear unrealistic due to overly large blocks of a single color.

This coin has a wider range of grade opinions than most. I"m thinking MS rather than AU mostly due to the rims showing little evidence of circulation hits.

The problem with modern camera is too many megapixels of resolution. It's not needed for internet coin pictures. I use 6MP Canon and it's ideal for web pics. All I have to do is crop and a slight resize and it's done.

This is how the TPG's make their money, on low-upside submissions like this.

Well, in the defense of whoever submitted this coin, the rims are razor sharp, square, and mirrored, die isn't a match, but the rims are insane on this coin.

Very interesting coin in hand...as @Grapecollects knows.

This time "buy the coin not the holder" works in reverse of its usual direction. I'd gladly buy that at 63 prices.

That I do.....

To add context I had sent this to KYCC so he could see it in hand. This is a coin from the LCS that I work at. It is the opinion of my boss that this coin is a matte proof coin produced on an undocumented set of dies. In hand the coin exhibits extremely squared off rims, proof-esq edges and the fields are lightly mirrored. I've seen this coin at work many times, I can say with confidence it's different then every business strike 09 VDB I've ever seen (hundreds) and different then most matte proofs I've seen (about half a dozen). Personally, I view this as a pattern coin. Given the number of similarities between this coin and a matte proof in hand, similarities that would not generally occur during normal production, and the imperfect nature of the coin, it is my personally opinion that this coin was a trial strike for the 09 matte proofs. If you agree, that's cool, if not that's a-okay.
