What do you think about this?!

#1 Unread post by Luckystarz » Fri Feb 26, 2016 1:37 am

It looks very very much to me like a lot of the obverse is doubled and there is no mint. But it is a 1909 vdb. These were the best pics I could get. I'd love to hear what anyone else thinks! gotcoins:

I don't see doubling, but the plastic is distorting the image.

The coin was not in the plastic. It was sitting on top of the opened snap tight holder. The lines that you see that are making it look distorted are actually really there. They are seemingly shining or somewhat discolored maybe because I was using a light to try to get them to show on the picture. I could try another method of taking the picture and post it later.

Yes, please try again with the coin on a neutral surface. The colors in the images are being separated similar to a rainbow, making the images appear to have been taken through the holder. And that distorts our view.
Take a good look at the images (through this post) to see why we are having difficulty. Thanks and keep on posting.
