Took these pics for a friend. Only editing done on the photos are cropping. What grade would you guys give? And critiques also welcome!!!

    VF35 to XF40 by wear but I am concerned about the black spotting on both the obverse and the reverse. It would make a good album coin.

    I think XF Details sounds about right as well.

    The photos are terrific, what did you use to take them?

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    The camera setup used for the photos is a hybrid. Body is a Canon mirror less, with lens converter for a Nikon Nikkor 105mm Micro Lens (manual focus). The camera body is very easy to control (touchscreen) including shutter with timer. Lighting used is 2x OTT. Copy stand is a heavy duty BESELER. There is also an L-bracket attached so it’s easier to view from the side as opposed to being behind the copy stand. Last attachment is a tripod ball head to better level the body.

    I’ve attached some photos.
