I don't have any photos but if you have some coins you would like photographed for this purpose I would be willing to take the shots. I would like to start expanding my photography skills and this would be a good way to start.

Thanks

The site is definately a work in progress. I have not had time to do anything with it since I got it up and running.

It's mostly just for fun as I do have a full time engineering job.

I have a 1881-S Morgan but it is not graded yet. Once I  have it graded and figure out how to Photograph my coins I will send a post.
 
Does it have to be graded ?
 
We still have not been able to photograph coins yet because we are not educated in the art itself.
 
We have a Canon EOS Rebel 8.0 MP camera, if anyone has instructions as to the best settings to use or hints, tips, and ideas I would be very grateful.
 
 
Thank you,
 
Hank

Do you have 1881-S in MS64? I am pretty sure I have one lying around that I could snaps some shots of.

Do you want seperate shots of the coin and the slab? It would be kind of difficult to get a 400 x 400 shot of the slab.

Is the 400 x 400 for each side of the coin or for the total size including both sides.

     This guide will hopefully help you to become better at assigning grades to Morgan Silver Dollars.  I am not an expert, and this guide is by no means "the law".  I will give a rough guideline on what should and should not be present in order for a coin to qualify for a particular grade.  There are a LOT of over-graded Morgans on Ebay.  If you are a person who buys coins based on eye appeal alone and never plan to trade or sell them, this guide will mean little to you.  If however you do plan to upgrade or sell your collection in the future, these guidelines may help you make more informed purchases.  Ebay only allows 10 pictures per guide, but these should give you a good representation of each grade.  I encourage you to buy the ANA Grading Standards for US Coins 6th edition.  It covers all US issues and is a wonderful reference.
