Just found this one in an UNC roll. Quite strong and shouldn't need close up pics for it.

Nice, I like these Wheat cent DDRs on EPU. Very frustrating to attribute in circulated condition though.

My goodness that's a severe DDR, and in UNC condition as well!

An absolutely gorgeous coin, great find!

The concept of maturity is complex. While one's capacity to be mature can be correlated with age, someone's overall maturity and respect for life is not. Maturity is formed through experience and perception.
Human progress can only be achieved through trial and error.

How did you get such good pictures? Every time I try to photograph an uncirculated coin I get tons of glare and you lose the detail. I've tried many lighting techniques and even diffusers and white boards it's driving me nuts I MUST KNOW

Great DDR.

Not a lot of DDR's for the year but was there a particular marker that clinched this variety # for you?

Thanks folks!

And Pete, yes, you can see the die marker on the reverse. There is a fairly strong die scratch, almost a die gouge, heading roughly south from the bottom of the first S in STATES.

Yorkish, I am not ignoring your question about lighting and photos. Just have been asked that a lot and every time I tell myself I need to post something somewhere about how I shoot my images so I can link to it instead of write it all out over and over.

Short story is that for the full coin shots I use a real camera, a Canon S95 which is now cheap on ebay as but is a little powerhouse for taking quality images. No fancy lighting, but a flat post-it note as a background with an open bulb roughly six inches behind and 12 above the coin. Creates a nice angle for the light, and you can just spin the coin around on the post-it to adjust where you want the light coming from without adjusting the light. Key is the bulb, though. I am using SATCO 1490 Lumens 72W bulb.
