Plus they are great to deal with. Two thumbs up
@AnitaMore …the scope needs to have 3 Megapixel capability or better. Inexpensive ones tend to have 2MP and result in pixelation problems.
Make sure the one you get works with your computer’s OS (operating system).
You can pick up decent enough small ones for around $20, but then if you need real magnification, it would be worthless.
My experience has been that people with only microscopes, or use them consistently, tend to "find" so many errors (NOT) that it is actually an encumbrance.
Agree. I've been dealing with a new collector with a microscope that thinks every tiny hit or reflection on a coin seen at 30X is a doubled die or Mint error! And now I'm the bad guy along with the rest of the experienced members here.
. They used to be ( 20+Years ago) about $5000-7,000 for a student level when I took a summer class at a university with a new toy. My cheapo college never would buy one as they were only producing nurses and not pre-med. Instead they put in a cadaver room, but after one cadaver went south, it is being remodeled into a spare office Jim
