I got this from a CCF forum member, and shot it in HiRes. One of the bigger BIEs I've seen. Not as big as the 1955-S Cohen B650 "Sausage" (LDS RPM-004) but still pretty impressive. Not the prettiest coin either, but sometimes the difficult ones are tough to find in high grade.

The HiRes image is too big to share here anywhere near full size (9500x9500) but below is a 10x downsized copy. You can see the full size image here:

    Thanks guys!

    I've been working for over a decade to be able to show a single photo that has a clear view of all the die markers of a die variety / die error / minting error, and can finally achieve this with a reasonable workflow. It's unfortunate that these very large images are difficult to share, but I have plans to host them on my own website someday. For now I am shooting the coins that interest me most: new variety discoveries; interesting die errors (like the BIE shown above); very early die state coins (a particular passion of mine); projects (like the high relief 42-P Pattern); and anything else interesting that pops up. Take a look at the other coins I'm showing on EasyZoom...there are some fun coins to see there...but I warn you that zooming-in to every area of a coin can be very mesmerizing!

    Man, that EasyZooming in is unbelievable!! You can zoom in without the picture getting blurry!! And yes, it's mesmerizing! 👍

  • Wow, just outstanding! Coin photography has been a nemesis of mine for a very, very long time. I’d give my left you know what for this capability. Just incredible.

    Thanks all for the kind comments.

    I've been considering hosting my own website so I can share more of these photos. EasyZoom is limiting in terms of storage and cost. I have access to similar zooming tools that could be integrated into my own site. But for now I'll just upload the photos as I take them, of interesting coins or projects or whatever, until I run out of space (again) and get frustrated with the limitations.
