This is a higher resolution as discussed.

Happycoins ;)
Dear PCGS-ASIA,

 Is the picture in the link from the recent Chengxuan Auction below also a Shandong variety?

If so, if I send my YSK Shandong variety which previously posted as quoted to PCGS in Hong Kong for grading, would the variety be noted in the label?

I gave my new Lao Jiangnan, a Hunan constitution dollar and my new 1908 Peiyang 罗马体 to a dealer friend to send them to PCGS today :001_smile: 期待结果!

Edit: I get an HTTP 500 error when trying to upload pictures?

Looks like the Shandong Big Button to [ 山东大扣版 ]me - note how the button "floats".

And yes, if this is deemed to be that variety it WILL be noted on the label - no extra charge.


Here is an archival image:

PCGS-ASIA,
These are fabulous close-up pictures you've posted!  Please tell me how you did it, specialized microscope camera with ring light?  I'm interested in varieties and sometimes it is necessary to close in with proper lighting.  My normal setup with a camera stand and Olympus SP-800UZ is just not up to the task.

These are archival pictures from our photo department.

I could go back and inspect the equipment, but it is basically your standard copy table,
with adjustable lights on either side, and a nice digital camera.

They will use reflectors to move light angle or fill and get a better photo.

I fudge around with them in Photoshop depending on my needs.
(so basically, I'm starting with a large size image and zooming in on a given detail
with photoshop)....

The images are HUGE, so when I scale them down, they still look nice.

They sure do look nice.  I see there are a lot about photography I still need to learn.  That's the wonderful thing about digital photography, free film and instant feedback.  Your Y73.2 卷3 is an inspiration aspiration (this is bugging me, I can hear my old English teacher, Mrs Oliver, "tsk, tsk" beyond the grave).

Hehe, I got a new coin while traveling in Szechuan.  N16




While at first glance the condition may seem a bit lacking, this is normal for this type, and I'm actually pretty happy it still has some luster. You can read more about Szechuan varieties here:

I already gave my coin to a dealer friend to send it to PCGS, I hope the variety will be mentionned on the slab!

DDO stands for "Doubled Die Obverse", but I'd be grateful if you could tell me what means NF  :blush:
