“Coins with very beautiful women”

http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=2651.0

I stumbled upon this a while ago. I am still planning to upload some photos to that thread. There is a significant number of famous women chronicled in ancient Chinese history and legends. Updates are appreciated.

There are discussion threads here that deal with photography. They are quite eclectic with all tastes and equipment catered for. Perhaps the best attribute of the threads is that they are not necessarily prescriptive and allow you room to grow as a budding coin photographer!

This may not be an exhaustive list but that is enough to keep one busy for an afternoon!

Wow! Kona Jim was still active in one of these threads. Just a few weeks ago his name came up in a conversation with Arif.  Maybe he has reached legendary status as an example of a certain type of coin market participant?

Some of the equipment mentioned in this sounds ancient by now (or maybe it's only me that has gotten ancient), but the principles of taking nice coin photos have not changed a whit. Just do it.

Thanks KOT!

Best wishes,

The Historical Figures have numerous varieties and were the starting point of my interests in MCC and its varieties in 2011.  I posted many pictures of the varieties that were not recognized by NGC for 6+ years.  I even submitted a few examples to NGC and pointed out the differences to no avail.  Then out of the blue, two of these varieties were recognized in the past two months.  I think it should be interesting to review this rather lengthy thread and see what other varieties might get recognized.

NGC has become a source of frustration in the recognition of varieties for MCC...I almost want to stick a needle in my eye.  I am trying to get something recognized as we speak....what a headache.  Long story short, NGC officially recognizes an MS variety...for which I found the same variety in a Proof.  NGC response...oh we don't recognize the proof variety!!!  Really, no kidding, which is why I am submitting.  I first asked if it could be classified as a mule.....oh no we don't recognize a mule if its the same year....Really!!  I will keep you posted and provide pics when it get resolved.

Frustrating indeed, especially when I've submitted a pair of 1990 dragon & phoenix varieties that went unrecognized and then a year or two later the exact varieties were recognized!  I don't understand their process.  NGC recently have put out a new process for variety recognition but your experience suggests it may still be the same old process.
