    Perhaps you may have a DDO, but the images cannot verify, need sharper and more detailed close ups.

    Hi Mary - as Mike points out, giving the community a solid set of photos helps us dial in on what it is you are asking about while also presenting us with other abstract evidence. Tips:
    • A full photo of the Obverse and Reverse; sometimes when posting about DDO/DDR/RPM the coin markers are on both sides of the coin
    • Photos of the affected area
    • Photos that mimic what attribution sites list/show attribution markers (size, focus, lighting, etc.)
    • A full description on what you think it is you see or have questions about; if the community has to guess...they tend to become fatigued and short
    Lighting is especially important to consider. Glare is a top issue with photos as it creates 'optical delusions' and confuses the eyes of us older community members. Our goal is to help establish the coin's attribution, to help you develop your skills at attributing a variety, or giving you the good news that you've a discovery piece or the bad news that it's nothing at all. Either way, it's a learning opportunity for you and anyone who reads the thread. Keep up the hunt!! Something will cross your path before you know it.

    A technique, known as "axial photography" can really assist with that particular quarter. It is really quite simple to set up. Do some research on it. I used a piece of glass from an old picture, an nice bright lamp and a piece of black backing (black paper). I can add an image if you want, but there is lots of information available here on-ste, so search away, and enjoy.
