Paul,I'm going to be optimistic and take the fact that you didn't dismiss this right away, as a promising result. PLEASE MAKE ME A HAPPY MAN

It may take a little time to get better photos of it with a better camera. I will be back soon with those. Just curious, where are you located

I have been collecting for about 20 years, but recently started hunting for errors. Started that 2 weeks ago .if this pans out,I think I may upset some folks who have hunted for years. I hope not. BUT I'm all for beginner's luck. Lol

Ray69;

For the record I am in no way criticizing you.

When posting photos of a coin you want someone to look at, you should post a photo of the full Obverse and Reverse. Try to take these photos as clear as possible. It would help if you could crop these photos. Next, take photos of the area in question again as clear as possible. If possible, it would be helpful if you could find a way to point to, or some other way to let them know where you are questing. As for photo editing programs, if you do not have one there are three free programs you can get. They are PhotoScape, Inkscape and Gimp. Of all of them PhotoScape is by far the easiest.


Thanks
