Re: Test of new imaging procedure

Have you tried turning you microscope so that the scope is perpendicular to the base and then placing blocks under the base to achieve more than the 7".

1996 Black Ring Toonie

Got this in my change a while back, first thought was that it was an abused 2022.
Took some pics and checked it with the microscope thinking it may be fake but just appears to be very worn.

Re: New Black Ring Toonies

Messaged the Mint a while back, doesn't sound like they are going to sell them. They said that starting in December they were going to supply rolls to banks. Checked my bank last week and they haven't received any.

Re: 50 cent grading help

Thanks Bill, the splotches are on the coin. I took pics without the light box & zoomed in closer so the wear is more evident (hopefully). Could the splotches be from cleaning?
