Can anyone recommend a USB microscope for coins?

Hi there, I was wondering if I may ask for input on USB microscopes? I'm wanting to purchase an inexpensive one ($20-$40 range) for observing US coins. I'm seeing several on Amazon but was curious to know if anyone has one they can recommend. I don't need anything too high powered, and I do have an older laptop I can use it with. Any input would be appreciated, thanks! :)

    Plugable USB is a pretty good unit and it's on prime. Price is right too. Peace Roy

  • Hey Spiders. I purchased this scope on Amazon a couple months back to zoom into some pests on my coconut palm and it was only $39.99. I believe their might be a coupon as well for an additional 20% off. I don't see why it can be used for coins as well. I'm going to attempt to attach a pic of it zoomed in on a dime so you can see.

    Just go on Amazon and do a search for "Wireless Digital Microscope, Skybasic Mini Pocket Handheld USB 50x to 1000x Magnification Camera 1080P FHD 2.0 MP 8 LED WiFi Endoscope Compatible with Android Smartphone, iPhone, Tablet, Windows Mac"
