Now that the new TrueView background is officially on the PCGS homepage, I'm wondering if the black background prototype posted by @PCGSPhoto in December is available? Here's the thread:

https://forums.collectors.com/discussion/1010800/trueview-template-changes/p1

I prefer the black because I'm still not used to the white background transitioning from gray on the left to white on the right. That and I just generally like black :)

    I think the black really brings out silver and gold coins.

    I prefer the black background.. .makes the coin 'pop' a bit more... the white background tends to 'wash out' the coin a bit. Cheers, RickO

    Looks like going to have to do your own background fill color.

    First thank you for coming here to update us.
    Can you share with us what kind of set up ( camera & lens, lighting ect ) you are using while taking the beautiful Truview pictures? Maybe a photo shot of the true view equipment while taking a photo. Just curious and again sincerely thank you. :)
