I collect coins of all types,my favorite is the Morgan SILVER DOLLAR.I love the feel of it and the design.I also enjoy VAMMING and I love the PEACE silver dollars also.I take micro pictures to get the very details that make Vamming an interesting hobby.
We would like to see more of your pictures. We find that removing the coins from their holders before imaging them produces a better result. Check out some of the major auction sites (Heritage, Stack's, Bowers & Merena, Goldberg's, etc.) to see how the pros do it.
No problem I love to post some more pictures,Currently I scan the coin both sides and then I go and put them under the scope and try to take some fine details of the coin.If you need certain pictures of the coins I have or need me to take one of a particular area just let me know,thanks for asking
We are trying to make this site into the Wikipedia for coins. While you are taking your pictures, be thinking of how you can organize them for use in an article for other users. One of our other authors has already started many articles featuring varoius VAM varieties; perhaps your images could be used there.
Cool once I get this figured out I will put them all in order,you all can use any of my pictures you like.
- If you have this book: Van Allen, Leroy, and A. George Mallis, Comprehensive Catalog and Encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace Dollars, 4th Ed., Worldwide Ventures, 1998 , it will help alot. It describes the VAM's. If you do not have it, try www.half.com ;-) All of the Peace dollars need VAM desciptions and photos. 2old 13:35, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
