Glad to hear that you learned and this coin does look like a DDO despite image issues. Most of these are Master Hub Doubled and worth a few dollars and this looks like it could be the 003 http://coppercoins.com/lincoln/diestate ... _state=mds

Overall, I think your photos are pretty good. You can try moving the light about so that the coin is not over-exposed in areas, but that comes with a little practice. Another thing to try with a digital microscope of this type is to raise it up on a platform. Stack a few books so you raise it about 4-6 higher, then lean it out so it can view straight down. You should be able to get the whole coin then.

Mark, my scope is held in a goose neck stand that has a round, flat base on it that's about 4" or so in diameter. So, are you saying I could raise the scope by setting it on 4-5 books, lean it out a ways, and then I'd be able to get the whole coin, or most of it??

CHIKA, R U HAVING THIS PROBLEM WITH THE REPLACEMENT SCOPE?
I THINK THOSE D/L AM3000 SERIES SCOPES HAVE A 'LONGER FOCAL LENGTH' AT LARGER DIAMETERS..?

Hi Pauly -- Yes, I have a lot of trouble getting a full sized coin in view. And a slab is almost impossible to photograph properly. I think you're right about the AM3000 series. But I'm going to try Mark's little trick and see if that helps. I have an appointment this morning so I may not be able to do it until late this afternoon or maybe tonight sometime. I'll let you know.... Or, I'll post a pic! Laters, sweetheart!

This is the FS# 103 or 1972P-1DO-003 CLASS 1 CONECA: 3-O-I-CW | Crawford:CDDO-003 Wexler: WDDO-003

Strong CW rotated hub doubling seen on LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, Lincoln's coat and the date. Similar, but not as strong as, die 008.
