Any new purchases (or creations) to share with us?

Oh lots of random stuff. Lol. I'll have to remember to photograph some things tonight.

I just like to share, I came across this site where there are useful facts, comparisons and images of real and counterfeit coins.

 

Silver Coins

 

 

I found it very useful as I am a newbie coin collector, and do not know as much about coin technicalities and such. I was almost lured to buying old coins from ebay. Good thing I came across this site.

 

Agreed, coins or bullion on ebay are highly counterfeit. Stick to reputable dealers!

Gorgeous photos, tell me, how exactly did you edit these photos in LR?

You can buy a pocket size scale for less than $20 bucks as your first line of defense against counterfeiting.  The Red Book lists sizes, weights for every U.S. coin minted. Most dollar sized counterfeits are 5 to 10 grams underweight and a sure sign to run!  Most dealers today have a precious metal verifier to read the density of the precious metal and most will check your coin(s) for free. Protect yourself and remember if it is too good to be true it probably is!
