    New Member Intro

    Hi all...just joined this forum and this is first post. Wanted to make first post on photography section since that's what I'm "focused" on at present. Here are some of my latest photos of a 1956-D/D RPM-1 Lincoln Wheat Cent using two setups. Overall photos are using a bellows and enlarging lens combo on my Nikon D7000. Detail photo is using a Bausch & Lomb MonoZoom7 microscope with a Tucsen 3MP camera. Any thoughts or discussion about these is appreciated! Thanks...Ray

    My only comment is welcome to the forum and I sincerely hope you stick around. You obviously have very good numismatic photography skills and your knowledge would be a great asset to this site.

    Are you mainly a variety collector (rpms)?

    Thanks, I've made progress over the last year or so since I've gotten serious about it.

    I mainly collect Lincoln Wheat Cent varieties such as RPMs, OMMs, and Doubled Dies. I search BU rolls and buy them whenever I can. I've been lucky last 6 months and have a few hundred to go through(!). I just need to start spending more time with the coins than the photography equipment...Ray

    Thought you would like to see something a little different...I put together a high magnification setup using a bellows with integral macrophotography stand. I mounted a Rodenstock 35mm f/4 Eurygon lens to it and snapped a photo at 5:1 magnification of the date on a 1921 Dollar I've used to compare my previous setups. The Eurygon is an excellent lens at around 5:1 and gives a nice clear image. Lighting was with a single LED light.

    Do you guys have much interest in these higher magnification images for varieties, details, etc?

    Here is a picture of the setup:



    And here is the photo of 1921 Dollar at ~5x magnification:

    I personally don't take close images of the details. I usually just use my macro and since my 5d has such a huge sensor I just crop for detail. Although this is some pretty nice detail you got going here, I don't think I can match it with my setup (canon 5d mark ii and 100mm macro).

    I finally took pictures of 22 Lincoln Cent varieties that have been laying around needing to be attributed. Would appreciate any insight into

    these. Here are the first 6:

    1946-D/D CW and DDO (Widening/Slight Notching of 946 of Date plus odd chin doubling)




    1952-D/D CCW (possible D/D/D, tripling shows in lower serif)



    1952-D/D CW



    1951-D/D CW (possible D/D/D) plus interesting doubling on 5 of Date




    1952-D/D CW



    1953-S/S East
