Incredible coin! Your photography skills are outstanding. I'd love to be able to take photos like that. Care to share your setup?

Thanks. Canon EOS 6D Mark II; EF100mm, f2.8L macro lens; tripod; desk lamps; trial and error. Each coin is different.

I am self-taught, but have had plenty of practice, Jim, so this one took three tries to get the lighting to work.

I bought the nice camera and macro lens when I was writing "Past & Nearly Perfect." I really wanted to do photographic justice to the beautiful specimen cents in that book. High mint state and specimen cents are the hardest to image, because of the reflective glare and the fact that they are usually in a TPG holder. Sometimes the 45-degree glass method is the only good way to image those.

Need I say more. Every photo that you take of your coins hurts my eyes because of the sheen/luster. Attaboy!

Here is one more. It came out of nowhere and walked in the door at a 2008 Long Beach show, where a U.S. dealer bought it raw and promptly sold it to Chuck Moore, who within a day or two (after show grading) sold it to me. 1859 W9/8, PCGS MS-64RB.

It is one of my personal favorites, as it was struck by a fairly scarce die pair.

This was the cover coin for the 2011 Charlton catalogue, within which several of us assembled the one-cent variety section. IMO it is almost a 65. Probably the darker reverse held it back. It obviously sat unmoved in a stack of coins for many years.

Nice shots Rob, your setup is almost exactly the same as mine. And I reshot almost everything I had photographed in the past as well. It makes a world of difference for sure!
