I'm thinking this is a rim cud. Your opinions please.

Also I'm trying to figure out lighting for coin pictures. I think I'm ok with most coins but I have an ((aggravating problem)) with very red/shiny Lincoln coins. Do you have any suggestions about diffusers or anything that'll be helpful. I can't seem to get rid of the glare. With glare pictures just not in focus enough.
Thank you. Rob.

Looks more like a contact mark. What is your light source? Single light sources are better for micro photos. Diffusers are very cheap. Any where from a plastic grocery bag to a sheet or two of bond paper. It cuts the glare.

In my studio. LOL

Also consider blocking out unwanted light sources:


Portable diffuser:
Wire hanger and a grocery bag with tape to make a curtain:

This will remove your glare issues.

CoopHome: Diffuse light sources.

When I first looked at the first two pictures I don't see anything on the rim. The close up's seem to show something. My advice would be to get a small type box to throw it it in and look at it later. I have two of these boxes and as I learn this field of coin collecting my knowledge grows. This will happen for all of use.

I use coin tubes for storage. They take a lot less space.

I agree that it looks more like hits on the edge that pushed metal over.

Great setup. Great tips.
Lol. You should see my studio. I use a box from post office for scope height. I like the Mighty Bright set up.
Can you/do you adjust light if necessary?
I see your coin is on a slight slant (towards light?)
How and what do you use to take pictures?
For the close ups I made a stand to hold phone at eyepiece of scope.
Sorry for all the questions. Lol there's actually more.

Coop. Thanks again for all your help.
