    guess that didn't work out too well. any ideas on how to enlarge this so you can actually see it. When I scanned it, it was too large for the site. This is what I ended up with...

    Use your scanner software to crop the picture and show just the dime - not all the background around it. That will reduce the file size a good deal.

    It is the file size you need to reduce - not the picture size. Do you have an option to compress your file size with your scanner software ?

    No all I can do is resize the image. I don't see any information around compression. I'll start all over again and see if I can find anything...damn technology...

    Try cropping the image. You want to take a pic like this -

    And turn it into a pic like this -

    Now to your question - yes it is an error, but a minor one. The coin is struck slightly off center.

    If you have Microsoft Office, you can use the Microsoft Office Picture Manager to crop and compress the image. The program has options for both under "edit"
