Cheap Coin Photography

I can't justify the expense of really good photo set up.  If I wanted a really good photo of a special coin, I'll have PCGS slab it or re-slab it and add TrueView.  I'd never have the equipment or the skill to produce images like that.

Here's my "setup" using my old iPhone 4S.  Actually, since we just bought a 5S for my wife, I'll probably start using hers going forward.

Unfortunately, I did quite a bit of photography before I thought to anchor things down with a rubber band.  Some of my shots were not the most clear:

But others did turn out pretty sharp:

If I'm bored sometime I will reshoot many of the less stellar efforts.

Nothing beats PCGS TrueView, though:
