I'm now ? my near and far S's I thought I know but now I'm not sure.

What do you think the 4 below are, hope pics are good enough. The first one does have more luster.

I'll take a stab at it. It's easier with the coin in hand but I will say 1 and 4 are far with 2 and 3 near.

I agree with Jimmy. The best way to see is the "S". If upper inside is strait is far, if concave is near.

But I still have a hard time, I will blame it on the old eyes.

If anything, the "this will help you out" makes it even further a mystery. Let's just say that the graphic representation of the difference is no help at all. I'm an engineer and it makes no sense at all. Why don't people just look at the gap?

Oki, from the point of view of mathematical you are wright. How you measure the gap? who has those measurement tools? Is prove already that the majority, I do not say all; when the "S" is concave is near. Is not me who state this it is the community.

Me if I have the coin I can measure. But even there the question is how much must be? No one know. If the third digit after point differed? it is far or near?.

So what was observe till now and the studies is shore are not in cement, it is say that the inside "S" upper right is concave in near and strait on far.

If you find better way please just post. Anyone will be glad to know and adapt.

I didn't mean to physically "measure" the gap. I meant, just looking at the gap difference with your eyes if you have 2 or more coins.
