First, welcome to the neighborhood, Christina!
Your close-ups are too blurry. Can you post a photo of the full obverse (heads)?
FYI: Dies are not cast. Also, don't pay any attention to BoobTube. There is too much misinformation. ~ Chris
Thanks! This is the best I can get with my cell phone...still a bit blurry The others was with a magnifier attachment on the phone. I'm still learning all the terms lol. Thanks for taking the time to reply. The mint mark looks filled in, is that common?
Yes, it does look like rolling machine damage. It's not unusual for the mintmark to appear filled, especially on older circulated coins.
Unfortunately, most close-ups taken with a magnifier are not that good.
Thanks! ~ Chris
Thanks, so this is pretty common then?
Yes it is.
Yes.. Add many years of circulation wear and it will also add to that filled in issue.
Any suggestions on what I could use (that's affordable) to take better close-ups?
There are members, here, who use a phone camera with pretty good success. I'm not one of those. There have been many discussions on the subject. Perhaps someone will chime in or you can start a new thread on this specific subject and get some help. ~ Chris
