    either an rpm or the proof that the big bang never happened. ;)

    perhaps a date would help to know.

    generally, the thing in the upper loop that looks like that tend to be die chips.

    do you possess a camera phone?

    also, sometimes, zooming in too far hurts more than it helps.

    If enlargement does not have focus, it is wasted time. Stay focused and we might see what you are looking at. Here is an example of an enlargement(not the best by far) that one can see the doubling one might be looking for in a coin. Just a camera photo enlargement.

    Lighting and lenses are my issues .
    The amscope software does not work well for me ! Cell phones for proof coin images are not good up close imo

    I can confirm certainly that the third image (left to right) and the second image in your second post (top to bottom) in your original post is the FS-501 RPM. The other two pictures are too blurry to be certain of a match. I do wonder why you pulled that FS-501 image off of Variety Vista though.

    Thank you .As a comparison to my coin the fs501 has a similar tail on the s that I saw on my coin. That is the only proof rpm on vv .
    Just want to know if there is an rpm on mine ..its like a quiz! Lol

    The pictures are far too blurry to conclusively determine RPM or not. Cheers, RickO

    @ricko amy suggestions ? What are you using for high resolution magnification?

    @rodeo514 ... That is funny.... You may be asking the worst coin photographer on the forum. For many years I did not even post a picture. Then I started to... and all I use is my phone. There are several really great coin photographers here who can help you. Cheers, RickO
