Now that I have bought better lights I would like to show how beautiful my 1938-D is. How are these images?
Any better?

    Well...not sure what the coin looks like in hand but the pic makes it looks cleaned, especially the obverse.

    Just playing around with the lights. This one was taken while in the danso album. I don't want to keep taking it out.
    Definetly not cleaned but it does have polish lines. Working on cutting back on the reflection. I think I got a little lint in the album now. I'll have to clean it out. I see it around 9:00.

    If it were cleaned I would admit it. It's got beautiful luster with polish lines. If I lie to you in lying to myself.
    I'm more concerned about thetting better images than I am about picture grading.

    Keep adjusting your lighting, the second set looks better. ;)

    The marks around IGWT look like they may be die polish, in my opinion. I haven't followed your multiple threads on this coin and the set, but I know they exist; my advice would be to submit the coins you are most confident in (including this coin) and share the results and TrueViews when they are available.

    Good luck!

    Tom this thread is more about photography. This coin has been a challenge for me.
    This is a hobby for me. Taking images and posting them is something I enjoy as part of the hobby.
    I think your suggestion is a good one for the sake of imaging but from what I have been reading PCGS is working on their imaging as well.
    I hold you comments in high regards as I know your a pro.

    Looks to have nice luster. Comparing it to other high grade examples online, looks like die polish to me.

    I don't know what it would grade but I like it, die polish and all.

    Use a desk lamp if possible to take the images.

    Do not use natural night.
