    Yes, obverse is a little choppy, and the right wheat ears not as strong as left, but I don't think it is too bad given the year and mint mark.

    Nope. Just a recent Ebay purchased for my date/mint mark Lincoln set.

    Speaking of detail, I was wanting to get something to help me see coins and Gems better, and also use it to do fine soldering etc. I was looking at the Amscopes and ended up getting a used Trinocular models with a camera. It was set up more for Gemstones but works great with coins. The only problem is now every website I go to the Amscope adds follow me, even here.

    But getting back on subject you did a great job of displaying your wheat penny. What type camera did you use to take the picture?

    Thanks, I really appreciate the comment. Honestly, coin photography is annoying to me. I feel I am bad at it. I used to have a nice camera to perform all sorts of shots (including the one I took involving my avatar), but I lost editing program and I became excessively annoyed the space and time the set up took.

    Alas, I went the lazy way and the above cent was from my android phone. Not as clear or crisp as I like, but it gets the point across in a couple clicks.

    I agree. I feel the San Fran strikes are miserable for the 1920s. I resigned myself for a couple XFs, this year being one of them, but I saw this, gave an offer and seller accepted, so I was pleased with the result for the most part.
