    Yeah, think I'm to the point where it may be worthwhile to drop a few dollars on a nice photo set up.

    maybe. obviously your choice. a decent 5 or 6+ gen and some understanding of lighting placement angles x/y/z axis and tbh, you can do pretty well. an official setup with have more versatility and of course a heck of a lot more cost.

    when i had my nikon d90 and sigma lens, once i FINALLY got it all dialed in, there really weren't many/any smartphones that could compete with a specialty rig like that but it is a little overkill maybe? case-by-case basis depending on a person's wants/needs. OR you can keep doing it like you are. we can see what they are, assess condition and enjoy them with you.

    i only mentioned it at all because using sunlight is not an easy task and while i've seen a few do it over the years (along with ambient light, indirect) those were the exceptions and not the rule.

    enjoy your coins :)

    Usually takes a couple attempts to get them this "good". I am not selling much at this point, only an occasional eBay auction. I generally use photos to share or catalog what I own because anything of value ends up in the SDB. Before I sell off any significant items, I'd like to make a small investment in a better set-up. Love some of the quality photos I've seen here. I'm sure some have spent a good amount on their photo gear.

    Very nice CC Morgans... You did well, hope the pricing was good too. Are you doing a CC set?? They are fun. I did a set years ago... Still look at it from time to time. Not all slabbed, some in GSA plastic. Cheers, RickO

    I did great on price, especially the Ccs. The Philly date was closer to a retail price IMO. Im pretty much there... need a '92 and my '79 is a sad unslabbed G/VG example. Also have quite a few GSA examples too.

    Thanks, a diversion from Pre-1933 gold since gold price plus premiums have skyrocketed. Most of my pre-1933 was bought between $1100-$1400. Got tired of sitting on the sidelines and always enjoyed the Morgan series.
