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.

im seeing a prooflike 1893 columbian exposition half dollar on ebay that ngc gave a 62pl grading.  it looks stunning silverhawk. im now looking for 1892 proof columbian exposition proof half dollars. the 32 that ngc has graded should enlighten me to what i could get if mine grades proof too.   to day i went through a 7 yearold red book looking for coins where less then 10 were known, but not unique. { know what rare means, and ex rare?]. some  [8 knowns] were going for 200,000 bucks. one 5known went for $1,485,000!!!!!!!!!!.  i saw a quarter 4 known for $150,000. but those werent proof silverhawk. they were common issues. i looked at the ngc proof listings for the stellas. 9 known in 1880.  the 1879 listing puzzled me for the coiled hair too. it looks like when there are only two known of a proof that would be the rarest coin in proof except the unique ones. i hope your attitude isnt {'your stuff is crap, mine is golden "]. your coins look great silverhawk.  they arent proofs now are they. ive realy lernt alot today looking at the ngc pop listings for commem proofs. id love to see some of them.  yes if i had an extra 800 dollars i would bid the hell out of that prooflike. thankyou. you made my mouth salivate.

 silverhawk, you truely have some wonderous coins in your commems section. i wonder what the asking prices are for those 99 ngc graded proof commems that are listed in the pop report. 63 of them are isabellas and columians full proofs.  im still trying to figure out what     sp     pfma     and pfca mean.   i saw your columbus.  yours has more sail but i think mine has more bust.  i have hooked up with a graphics artist and i think today i might just get some pics if he isnt too busy.   is there any chance you might tell me why more known of a coin should bring more money to the seller? can you also explain why you think that just because the red book doesnt list a price that it doesnt exsist? why would ngc be grading these coins proof if they were worthless. why doesnt the redbook have the isabella proofs listed. certainly they are more common then the stella coiled hairs. and also could you explain why you think an MS coin should sell for more or equal to a PR? yes i realy enjoy looking at extreem quality. but when something has more detail where it counts shouldnt that look good too? could you explain too why a 62pl columbus is selling for so cheap? that one on e-bay is stunning to the max. and lastly you are selling your coins for too little. why?
