    Two 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar Proof Coins
    Just a little difference in color between the two.
    Nothing special here I guess.

  • Newp- 1828 12 Stars C-2. Some discoloration, but I’m getting better at capturing true color for coppers. This one uses two bendable led microscope lights with macro lens on a mount.

  • These are some test photos out of my new microscope. I'm just using some side lighting to bring help out. I'd like to get some feedback on any issues you might find.

  • LED lighting from above at all angles. Can’t tell this one has excellent natural luster. Might have to experiment with flash based on the posts here. Nikon D3500 18-55mm lens.

  • What's everyone think of the photography over at GreatCollections? I've been playing the Guess the Grade game and am pretty impressed. At first I thought the photos all had the same lighting setup for each coin series, but then I noticed some of had axial lighting, which is pretty neat because they're photographing through the slab. Post your fav below.

    History of the 1904 One Peso
    "The total issue of Philippine silver coins made at Philadelphia in 1904 was 11,355 sets. None of these were struck specifically for circulation.
    Sold at the mint throughout the year was a total of 1,355 sets. These were struck on order and were regular Proof issues. Another 10,000 sets were officially ordered by Farran Zerbe (widely known numismatist, later a president of the American Numismatic Association) to be placed for sale at the Philippine Exhibit held as part of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis during 1904. The first striking of his order for 10,000 set may have been proof like in quantity and appearance, but the majority of them were struck as Uncirculated coins. Of the 10,000 sets delivered for sale at St. Louis, there remained unsold 6,746 sets. There were sent to the Philippine Treasury in Manila where another 500 sets were sold; the rest were placed in circulation as ordinary coins".
