    Great image! Really shows off the split serif nicely.

    Yes Chris, it actually has a halo ( 4 ) for LCD lighting on it .
    I should be able to get some good images of this proof coin, which to me is the hardest to take images off ..

    I think I agree with you.
    I still use my old Scan-O-Matic on occasion. I had one as a kid years ago and found a replacement a couple of years back.
    I saw some for sell if you aren't familiar with it but I think I found the one I have from one of the larger coin and stamp suppliers.

    Can't argue with that.

    I now need magnification to see things I didn't need it for, 35 years ago.

    How old are you buddy? I could see 35 years ago without glasses or a microscope.

    56. It's not that I disagree with the true point afantiques was making; it's just a ton less eyestrain these days to use magnification. :)

    You think that cud would be worth getting graded?

    No idea.

    Not just because of the cud. The collector for whom that cud is an added-value feature won't care if the coin is in a slab or not.
