@carr, first welcome to CCF. I'm glad you found us and hope that we can help you understand what you are seeing with your coins.
Second, yes I agree that a poll isn't really needed here so I will remove that aspect of your thread. Don't stress about it though—it is a somewhat common mistake and is easily fixed.
Added: good point about your pictures. These close-ups, while not perfect, are well above average for a first post. Well done.
