Inquiring mind

#1 Unread post by DSCoins »

If someone was inquiring about trying to get into taking HR photos of coins, what would one recommend for equipment? Also, please keep mind that this person would need to start with very basic equipment due to income in/over income out.

There's a good video at https://www.archive.org on the subject. Looks like the video was presented by the Texas Numismatic Association at a convention about 8 years ago, but it covers all the basics. The link to the video is https://archive.org/details/TNA12001CoinPhotography.

www.archive.org is a great resource for older numismatic information such as news, reports, mint records, newsletters, prices, etc. It's treasure trove for anything historic. Lots of older scanned books.

Hope this helps!
