i have a square rimmed coin of this denomination.  i would like some advice as to how to photograph its rims. the bust has extreem , sharp detail. also i only know of one more of this type. it was graded by ngc. does anyone know of any others.   from the scanner.   now im told pcgs has graded a pr64 just like ngc has.  i wonder if its the same coin?

I would think a good macro lens would help. Try to light it evenly through multiple lights or a diffuser.

silverhawk.  if you know of any people who are highly qualified for photographing coins, who are in texas please let me know. i cant let this coin out of my site, unless it is insured, photographed, and registered, for at least 600 thousand dollars.  thats why i need to personaly be there cause this is the most premeir coin anyone could possably obtain in their life for peanuts.

One of the biggest dealers of high end coins is in Dallas.  His company is Anaconda coins (ebay and a website). His assistant Brandon takes some of the best photos on the web (seriously).
 
 
Are you sure you have a $600K coin?  I don't see any rarities listed in the Red Book. Makes me wonder....

There is a PR62 PL on eBay right now that has a BIN of $299.00. Your coin is not worth $600,000.
