I have been trying to grade coins for a few months now and can't decide on the best light source to use.

Here are my choices

1. natural sunlight
2. single bright light source
3. subdued light
4. Coors lite
5. Bud lite

My vote is 3 and 4! Coins look awesome under these
conditions. Maybe that's my problem all along.

I usually don't photograph my coins but I heard an incandescent light works well also sun light .
